My New Favorite Hi Hats

By timothy

from Harrisburg, PA

I've used these once for my band's four hour show last weekend and I love these! I debated between the A Custom, A Custom Mastersound and the A New Beat hats and went with the A Customs because I felt the New Beats would not cut through the band mix enough and the Mastersounds sounded too glassy to me. After hearing all 3 I loved the way the A Customs sounded! They clearly cut through the mix well but not so much that it was harsh, just the right blend. We play a few jazz style songs and the "chick" from these were great! They also were a perfect fit for the rock and the blues songs we play. We did a version of "I Put a Spell On You" and these hats were exactly what the song needs. Nice, crisp, and loud enough that it lends that perfect hi hat sound to my ear.

Zildjian A Custom Hi-Hats

By Zilnik

from WA

I have these A Custom hi hats in size 14". Honestly I am not too fond of the "rich-like" sound these hi hats give off. They are very full in color and I prefer more of a dry sound for my hi hats. However I am not saying these are bad cymbals, they just aren't the sound I am looking for.

13 inch hats

By sam ruel

from Ramsey NJ

these hats give off a perfect, bright, and versatile sound, that will well accompany any set of cymbals. best of all with a custom crashes and an a custom 20" ride. these give off the perfect volume for micing, they wont blow em out being too loud, but will be picked up perfectly. overall, best hats for a bright, nice tone.

Perfect hihats for anyone

By drummerman1453

from Oxford, OH

I bought a set of these 14 inch hihats and they are just amazing. There production and quality is wonderful. There deep sizzle and tight chick are perfect for just about any style of music. I play syles of music like rock, puck, funk, jazz, and fushion and these hihats do the job of delivering sweet sound for your music. If you want a great sounding, great looking pair of hihats then get the A custom hats.
