You wanted it. You got it. A warm, soft-sounding hihat made especially for cajon players. When mounted to the Meinl Low Hat Stand (not included), the new Meinl 10"" Candela series percussion hihat is always at the just the right height and comfortably within reach at all times. No more awkward stretching or contorting your body just to get your hand on that cymbal accent.
Candela hihats are light, extra-thin cymbals that reveal their full sound potential when played by hand. You can also strike them with lighter sticks to explore different nuances and tones as the music and tempo dictate. The top is extremely thin for a fast, controlled response to give you greater versatility in a variety of musical applications.
Each cymbal is a true one-of-a-kind in look and sound personality, handcrafted in Turkey from B20 bronze alloy, then hand-hammered into shape by Meinl craftsmen who have devoted their professional lives to creating the best and highest quality cymbals available for today’s percussion enthusiasts.
We recommend using Candela hihats with the Meinl Low Hat Stand, which is also made specifically for cajon players. The sturdy stand lets you mount cymbals down to a minimum height of 27” (69 cm) so it’s always easy to reach, hit and play without standing or stretching.
