These hats are great quality and work very well in both percussion and drum kit scenarios. They have a crisp closed and full open sound. I use these with a small jazz/bop kit and a percussion kit including a Cajon with a modified low high hat stand. These are not toys or effects cymbals. They hold their own in lower volume situations. Haven't tried them in a higher volume setup but I'd use my regular 14s for that. These are S series with very bright finish. They feel heavy and solid. My scaled down setup includes an 18 Uptown Ride, 14 thin crash and 8" splash all As first gen. These fit in sonically very well, visually they stick out because of the high shine bright finish.
