Democracy in action, kids!
Alas, my 14'' Zildjian Avedis quick beat hats can take no more, so it's time for a replacement! These will be my general all-purpose hi hats.
The choice is between:
Zildjian Avedis 14'' Mastersound - Traditional finish
Sexy sound, crisp and clear, which is something I love. Definate chick, which I also like. Perhaps too bright for a general all-around sound?
Zildjian Avedis 14'' Mastersound - Brilliant finish
Crap sound, but brilliant finish Zildjians look so damn cool.
Zildjian Avedis 14'' New Beat - Traditional finish
Different sound than the Mastersounds. Certainly less bright, but with the definate clarity. Slightly too middle of the road though, a bit boring?
Zildjian Avedis 15'' New Beat - Traditional finish
Larger hats, which I tend to like from a playing perspective, especially when playing quite heavy. Unfortunately, all the 15'' hats I've had have sucked when played washy.
So the choice is up to you! Vote for which ones take your fancy, for whatever reason you want. I expect 100+ replies by the end of the week!
