18" AA SICK HATS

Catalog Id 218SHN

The most surprising thing about Sick Hats is that if you were to hear them without seeing them, you would never imagine it was a pair of 18" AA's! Thin, and very dry overall - despite all appearances, this is a very controllable pair of hats. Large holes allow Sick Hats to breathe in ways other Hats simply cannot - with virtually no airlock, you hear everything. Think of them as a controllable, pre-EQ white-noise effect. However, if you want more body, with less air in your face, and you want to play patterns without the holes getting in the way, just flip 'em over hole-side down!

Sound Bright
Weight Thin Top / Medium 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.
