14" HH Vanguard Hats

Catalog Id 114VH

Beautifully smooth transition from a fat, meaty "chick" to their inherently dry closed stick sound. Striking in appearance, they are completely raw on the bottom, lathed only on the outside 2" area of the bow, and lined the rest of the way to the cup. Their complex tone blends well, while offering enough power for mainstream sounds.

Sound Dark
Weight Medium Top / Medium-Heavy Bottom

The 16" and 17" V-Crashes come to sparkling life with ease and could grace many settings where quick, bright punctuation is required. From the 18" model upwards things take a distinct turn for the louder, with each increase in diameter notching up the volume further. While the 18" model is pretty full-on, the 19" and 20" are staggeringly powerful crashes that beg for a big stage on which to be unleashed. Despite being capable of such huge volume, their sweetness makes them dangerously playable.
