Paiste 402 Hi-Hat 14'' : EKweel's user review
Excellent for this range! I use it for over a year (bought used). Very good value: around € 100 new. We can control the various harmonics, and the open hi-hat sound is very nice, fine, silky. Much higher than the 302, do not be fooled by appearances, this hat is more like a mid-range at Paiste, as the bottom. Next appearance it sparkles, and I think he will shine long. This is an excellent compromise, we can keep it long, I think even for a pro. Well obviously, on some shots you do not feel the power of an Alpha or 2002 (hehe!) But still what Charley has character.
