Istanbul Signature Joey Waronker 14″ Hi-Hat Cymbals

When Istanbul created their Joey Waronker 14″ Hi-Hat cymbals, they did it under the direction of Waronker. Seeking a pair of cymbals with a very well defined and articulate ‘chick’ sound and a mellow, open ‘wash’, the Waronker 14″ Signature Hats were born!

With a host of session credits behind him (Beck, REM, Roger Waters and more), Joey wanted a pair of Hi-Hat cymbals that were medium weight, lightly hammered and finely lathed to produce the articulation he desired.
