  • $600.  That’s not a typo.  That is how much these HHX Hihats cost new. But you don’t have to pay anything close to that! And you need not sacrifice tone. 

  • These are some of the most expensive hihats in any catalog.  And with good reason too. These HHX Evolutions are remarkably versatile. They’re Sabian’s top of the line series. 

  • It’s like you smashed every hihat up into scrambled eggs and this is the taste. 

  • Clean. Semi-dark but with a subtle brightness mixed in. Hand hammered light complexity but overall great tight and focused attack.  Medium pitched with both high and lows present. Open them for a shimmering accent. Fantastic CHICK tone. 

  • They’re amazing Hihats that do it all. 

  • Sabian describes these hihats as:
    “Bright and crisp pairing with open-sound top and tight, heavy bottom for boosted Tone Projection."  

  • And that is accurate! This particular pair VERY CRISP sounding, with a hint of darkness and a bit of complexity.

  • With a lighter weight of 939 grams for the Top Cymbal and 1424 grams for the Bottom cymbal, these Sabians capitalize on the classic New Beat Thin Top/Heavy Bottom philosophy. As a matter of fact, these Evolutions remind me a bit of early Zildjian New Beat Hihats. Except as you can see, these HHXs are much more heavily hand hammered than the New Beats and have a slightly more COMPLEX tone, classic HHX tone. And Brilliant Finish too for a little darker shimmer!  

  • This pair cuts quite well for medium dark sounding hihats. The tone of these Evolutions is not too bright, and not too dark. The thinner top cymbal yields a responsive, semi-dark tone - not too bright and not too dark) while the heavier bottom cymbal lends plenty of CHICK and projection to the pair.

  • These HHX 14s are like DARKER, more musical and complex New Beats with the shimmer of a Brilliant Finish! 

  • Perfect from soft to loud. They can do it all.  Record magnificently. 

  • No issues. Light use.  Light patina. And they’re not $600 for a guess. 

  • You can hear them and hear how great they sound. A killer deal for Hihats that will do it all.
