Spotlight On

Zildjian Trash Hats

by Chuck Silverman

I'm always looking for some exotic, different sounds to help my playing stand out a little. One of my latest discoveries has been the Trash Hats from Zildjian. The pair of cymbals combine an Oriental China Trash with a special Trash Hat top. With my cymbals, I use an inverted 12" China - mounting the smaller 10" cymbal on top, with a hi-hat clutch. I mount this on an x-hat assembly, on the right side of the kit. The sound can be a controlled trashy crash to a wide open really trashy sound. I use a lot of double bass and using this cybal set-up for a ride really gives me some unique sonic possibilities. Also, when I want to ride on a couple (or three or four) different surfaces, the Trash Hats really add some nice qualities.

The cymbals are available as 10"/12", 12"/14", and 14", 16".
