  • And as you may know, these Sabian Regular Hats ARE SABIAN'S ANSWER TO ZILDJIAN NEW BEATS!!  

  • And I can’t call them “Regular Hats”, I simply refuse, because that’s one of the all-time dumbest names for cymbals I’ve ever heard in my life. Especially coming from Sabian who is known for their experimentation. 

  • So yes! These are Sabian New Beats! When Zildjian and Sabian split, Sabian’s AA series was the Zildjian A series.  

  • And has been for 40 years! 

  • Why pay MORE money for some beat-ass sounding Paiste PST hihats. Don't suffer through awful-sounding Sabin B8X Hihats just to save money.

  • Playing those things is like getting a toothache - it hurts every time you touch it!

  • So these Sabian New Beats are a terrific choice if you want a great pair of hihats but don’t want to break the bank. 

  • They sound EXACTLY like New Beats. Have a listen yourself.  

  • Weighing in at a lovely 970 grams for the Top Cymbal and 1438 grams for the Bottom Cymbal, these Sabian New Beats play like terrific Medium Thin l Hihats. The Top cymbal has a great  rise and focused tone but it's still a little bit thinner, so it provides a good response and musicality to the pair. It's not too bold or harsh sounding or grating like some brighter hihats can be. And the bottom cymbal is Medium-Heavy in weight and ensures a solid CHICK tone when playing with your foot--a la the New Beat philosophy. You can dig into these 14s" and it FEELS good. They're perfect for medium soft to loud volumes.

  • Semi-bright. Extremely well balanced. Clean, focused tone. Fantastic CHICK! Wonderfully versatile with a great dynamic range!

  • THAT is Sabian 14” New Beat (regular hats.) No issues. Great patina dries them out.

  • And for their versatility they are an absolute steal for the price!
