There are many high-quality brands for hi-hats in the current market, each one with its unique sound and identity.
The main sub-question here is “What sound you want to achieve and which genres you want to perform”.
An important thing to remember when trying to select a hi-hat is that size is incredibly important. The size of a cymbal is one of the most important factors in dictating its pitch and representation of frequencies. - Smaller hi-hats offer a brighter and punchier tone, making them well suited to genres that require a fast and aggressive attack with loads of cutting power. - Larger cymbals have a higher representation of bass and low-mid frequencies, resulting in a tone with more depth at the expense of brightness.
Four of the best brands currently are Zildjian, Meinl, Sabian and Paiste.
Zildjian cymbals are endorsed by the drummers of:
Metallica, Linkin Park, Foo Fighters, Muse, Justin Bieber, Rita Ora
