The hihat has a light tone and it is clear and very dynamic. The Ultimate Series can also play very hard which - along with the excellent attack - makes them superb for hard rock and metal.
However, the hihat is also fantastic as an all round hihat - for pop, rock, gospel, r'n'b, and more - precisely because it is so dynamic.
It sounds and reacts in just the right way - also when you play it lightly.
All in all a fantastic hihat for the drummer who wants a clear and well defined hihat sound.
