Providing you with a dirty (yet highly focused) chick sound and a rough, fuzzy character, Paiste PSTX Swiss hi-hats seem tailor-made for electronic music and hip-hop. When they’re closed, these hats sound fairly soft and responsive. When you open them; however, you get a noisy, trashy sound that’s brimming with distinctive character.
