MESSAGE ME FOR A CLIP OF THESE EXACT HIHATS. (Reverb sucks and won't let me post the link)
I verified with Meinl that these are a sort of prototype Jazz Medium Hihats. I have a boatload of hihats that I'm selling in order to get some other things. I have created a quick recording of all of the hihats, including these exact ones so you can hear them.
They have that buttery smooth 'Byzance Jazz series' sound but they are not trashy like the jazz thin hats can be. These can be used for all styles of music for sure. They don't feel too heavy. They can be nice and crisp and articulate, but open up and wash nicely for rock stuff. They're in the medium brightness category.
They're really cool hats. They can be your own unique sound if that's what you're looking for since they're one of a kind.
