That Stuart Copeland shimmery Hi Hat sound was what first came to mind when I first tried my new 451 in a session, I had been searching for that sound for years with other condensors, but this is the one! On acoustic guitars it brought a nice tone and openess as well!! Also a secret weapon on 4x12 cabinets :) A classic for any studio!!
