Simply put; art.

By jtoepfer

from Pittsburgh, PA

Comments about Zildjian A Custom Mastersound Hi-Hat Pair:

Zildjian is the master; these hats are amazing. i play everything, but mostly reggae, funk, jam, jazz, rock, etc. when you first hear them they may not do it for you, but when you start playing with them they do wonders. if you tighten the hi hat clutch too tight they lose a lot of play, but when on the loose end they have such rich, crisp, and masterful sounds. i have the 14", and they sound great for anything i could want, especially funky beats. buy them!!

Acustom Mastersounds

By TmaDrmr90

from Kingsville, TX

Comments about Zildjian A Custom Mastersound Hi-Hat Pair:

These Hats are pretty sweet if you ask me. I've owned these for about 4 years now and they sound better every day. They have No cracks, No key-holes, No dents or dings either, and I've hit them hard at times. Stick response is great. You dont have to hit hard to get that nice A-Custom sound you payed for. The bottom hat has that unique wavy tortilla edge as I like to call it. This allows for the air within the hat to escape very easily and very fast. The "chick" and "stick chick" sounds are one of a kind. I love playing these hats slightly seperated so I get that beautiful washy sound out of them. Keep 'em loose.

THE Best.

By Aaron Murray

from Ventura, California

Comments about Zildjian A Custom Mastersound Hi-Hat Pair:

I've had these cymbals (15") for about a year and a half now and I've got to say that they are everything I've wanted in hi-hats and more. I got these cymbals because i love the way that they sound when Abe Cunningham from Deftones pounds away at them, or even the beautiful "chicks" they make when they are closed. These cymbals are very musical and expressive, open and closed. They will give your setup a very unique sound that will catch the ear immediately. I tested out the 14" because i heard that they were the "standard in today's music" but ultimately favored the sounds of the 15". all sizes and versions of these hi-hats are worth every penny!

Perfect for you

By t4ma7495

from Mennor, OK

Comments about Zildjian A Custom Mastersound Hi-Hat Pair:

I own the 14" A custom Mastersounds and all i have to say is theres nothing out there that can compare. The chick to these is super crisp, these hats will suite your needs for any kind of music expect maybe metal but these haats are perfect for the rock/funk i play. Trust me when i say you won't be disapoointed in buying these.

Cutting edge!

By Richard Denson

from Richmond,Texas

Comments about Zildjian A Custom Mastersound Hi-Hat Pair:

These hi-hats are the cutting edge! Best cymbal purchase I've ever made. Opened or closed these hats are explosive, graceful and articulate. In a live situation the Zildjian A Custom Mastersound Hi-Hats are the best money can buy.

Very Proffesional.

By BluePhoenixDrummer

from Colorado Springs, Colorado

Comments about Zildjian A Custom Mastersound Hi-Hat Pair:

As I started out as a drummer, I wanted only the best equipment. These are an excellent pair of Hi-Hats. The ribbed lower is what makes the difference! They may not produce the sound you are looking for, however. They have a crisp, lasting sound. I would suggest them, but i would go to your local Guitar Center, and play them first. Excellent Cymbals.

Good sounding hihats

By Amos

from Moweaqua, IL

Comments about Zildjian A Custom Mastersound Hi-Hat Pair:

I recorded on a pair of 14" A Custom Mastersounds, and they sound sweet. The "chick" of the closed hi-hat is great and the washy sound of the open hi-hats sound just like they should. Zildian really did a good job in designing these hats. If you play harder music though, you might want to get thicker pair of hi-hats. Great for recording and/or softer music.

A Custom Mastersound Hi-hats

By Alex H

from New Jersey

Comments about Zildjian A Custom Mastersound Hi-Hat Pair:

These hi-hats are by far the best hi-hats out there. I got these hi-hats about 6 months ago and they are the best sounding hi-hats you wil ever come across. I love the nice chick sound that you get out of these and how they are awsome with any kind of music that you play them with. These hi-hats will cut threw with heavy rock or be perfect for playing jazz or softer music. You will not be disappointed with these hi-hats.

Awesome sock cymbals!

By Gtron

from San Diego, CA

Comments about Zildjian A Custom Mastersound Hi-Hat Pair:

These things rock. When you play with them open they ring loudly! I think the smaller ones sound quite a bit better, higher overtones!

Beautiful Hats! (13")

By augustburnsamazing

from Sacramento, CA

Comments about Zildjian A Custom Mastersound Hi-Hat Pair:

These hats are incredible. Let's break it down: SOUND Pure, crisp, lots of treble, 10k shine, loud but not overpowering, versatile, perfect. Amazing when amplified or recorded. A top 40 FOH engineer loved mine so much he bought some for his venue. QUALITY They're Zildjian A Custom, so they're top-notch. But don't get me wrong, they're not Z Customs. They won't last forever. But even if you gave them a couple cracks, they still sing. OVERALL Great hats. My favorite that I have ever owned. If you can swing them, by all means buy them, for practically any genre. Possibly step up to 14" or an A series model for rock or metal, if needed. SIMILAR Other great hats to consider are the Zildjian A Mastersound (14"), Sabian AA Stage Hats (14"), and Zildjian K/Z Combo hats. (13")

AWESOME

By PearlDrummer0100

from Detroit, MI

Comments about Zildjian A Custom Mastersound Hi-Hat Pair:

I upgraded about 6 months ago from a 14" ZBT hi hat. These hi hats are everything i was looking for. They can cut through any noise, but there never too loud. The flanged out bottom hat makes a great "slushy" sound when played open. I highly recommend these hi hats

Awsome hi-hats

By jcool31857

from Wisconsin

Comments about Zildjian A Custom Mastersound Hi-Hat Pair:

These are by far the best Zildjian hi-hats on the market. When your playing live with these or recording, they cut through everything. These A custom hats are so clear when playings, and provide that perfect "chick" that they should. I really prefer playing the 14" but have heard good things about the 13"'s too.

Amazing Cymbals, a little pricey

By ChrisN

from Concord CA

Comments about Zildjian A Custom Mastersound Hi-Hat Pair:

I was at my local music store today and saw that they had these cymbals on one of the drum kits. They were the 14"s. I have always heard amazing things about the cymbals, but never actually experienced them. I sat down and started jamming and wow I was really impressed. They cut through amazingly well, and the chick sound is unbeliveable. Those ridges on the bottom really make a difference. I also compared them to the regular A Custom 14's and I have to say these are better. The only downside to these cymbals is that they are expensive. Over the past 6 months these have gone up 50 dollars. Buy em quick before they get any more expensive!
