Similar to his china of the same name, Matt Garstka's signature Equilibrium Hi Hats strike a unique balance of attack, tone, response, and volume. Various sections of each cymbal have been lathed for brightness or left unlathed to enhance the attack and bite, while other areas are sandblasted to achieve an overall dryness. Additionally, the bottom cymbal has six holes around the bell which help to increase the foot chick. From sloshy, open volume to a crisp, tight attack, a papery feel under the stick, and a strong chick, these hi hats cover a wide range of dynamics and work in multiple situations.
When I play an instrument, I want it to work in every situation. These hi-hats do that in a perfectly balanced way, and that s why I ll be playing them for many years. - Matt Garstka
