    My first set of pro cymbals were 14" A series Mastersound hi hats that I ad ordered in Brilliant finish. This was years ago when Zildjian still offered that option. I remember not only feeling the weight difference but also noticing that. They weren't as loud as my ZBT plus hi hats. I still have the bottom in rotation but the top cymbal had a small crack on the edge so I put it aside to have it trimmed down to a 13" cymbal... someday.

    For me the mastersound has a higher pitch sound and you can really hear the click click sound which I also think it has an higher volume. But man they sound great.

    I'm glad to hear that you found a pair of hi hats that you like.

    I'm not sure if you know this already or not, but that wavy edge on your Mastersound hats is actually designed to allow the pocket of air to escape between the two hats. This results in a sharper "chick" sound from your hi hats.

    My Paiste Signature hi hats have a similar wavy design called Sound Edge.
