      Zildjian K Custom Hybrid Hi-Hats Pair (445427)
Availability:  


Professional cymbal with multiple tonal options.

Developed in conjunction with leading drum stylist Akira Jimbo, the Zildjian K Kustom Hybrid Hi-Hat Pair features an innovative brilliant/traditional surface that produces different tones depending on where the cymbal is played for a musical "darkness with brilliance" combination. The inner half features the unlathed, brilliant finish of the K Custom Ride, while the outer half features the traditionally finished K Zildjian lathing. The unlathed section helps control the wash and sustain, making it ideal for recording and live situations.

The innovative "Hybrid Hammering" on the hi-hat results in reverse Mastersound grooves by hammering into the bottom of the cymbal from the opposite side. This results in increased surface area contact between the top and bottom cymbals, and a warmer chick and wash than normal Mastersound hammering. Akira specified the 13-1/4" size to combine the power of a 14" size and the control of a 13".

"Maximum versatility is the main idea with the Hybrid series. I worked with Zildjian to design a line of cymbals where brilliance and darkness coexist. I think the sound we came up with sets the new standard for the 21st Century."--Akira Jimbo

Zildjian K Custom Hybrid Hi-Hats Pair Features:

  • Developed with Akira Jimbo
    Unlathed, brilliant finish of the K Custom Ride on the inner half

  • Pricey, but you get what you pay for...

    As reviewed by Ryan on 4/14/2009

    I purchased the 13 1/4" hats, and am very impressed with the quality of sounds I have gotten with them so far. They have a clean "chick" sound, and when played closed, they have super stick definition...really tight and clear. When opened up a bit, they still have lots of clarity and don't sound muddy at all. Laying into them makes them come alive, and they've got plenty of volume for most situations, yet they're not overpowering at any volume level. Overall, a great set of hi hats, minus the steep price!

  • BUY THESE!!!

    As reviewed by Jeremy on 10/27/2008

    I swear these are as good as hi-hats get. I bought the 13.25" hats today and they are truly AMAZING. They have a thick chick sound. When they are open they sound so clear and clean. You could have them just barely opened or opened as far as they can go, but it doesn't matter because it sounds good no matter how they are played. Zildjian did an awsome job crafting these cymbals. I swear you will never regret buying them.

  • Zildjian has done it again

    As reviewed by Natey Q on 9/22/2008

    I purchased the 13 1/4" hats and absolutly love them. The Sitck defination was the biggest seller to me besides the size (I love a smaller size hat). Odly enough, the custom K's fit into any style of music, blues, country, rock whatever you want to do these hats will produce. The top cymbal is a little on the thin side so if that worries you, try out the A mastersounds, but as long as your not hitting your hats with hammer-like force, no worries. A little pricey but worth it!
