Inspired by the need to take practical cymbals on the road, the DJ45 hi-hats feature a lightweight and strong alloy that can last constant gigs and studio sessions. The DJ45s have rough, clear sound that is suited to hip hop and breakbeat styles. The patterned holes add complexity and fuzziness to the high frequencies, resulting in the classic dry tone of the 1980s. The DJ45 hi-hats are ideal for gigging musicians wanting to recreate electronic music in a live setting.
Few musicians carry as much style, talent and enthusiasm as Daru Jones. Gaining acclaim for his work as the drummer for Jack White, Jones quickly established himself as a versatile musician who could fuse a variety of genres with his unique technique. Jones' style joins hip hop influenced beats with a technical rhythm for an engaging performance. This series of cymbals takes inspiration from the noisy sounds of early hip hop music and fuses them with easy playability for the modern performer. The DJ45 series has been designed in collaboration to achieve a reliable cymbal companion to the gigging musician.
