Excellent!

By Everardo Armenta

from Sinaloa, M���xico

Excellent sound, responsive, and slightly open gives an amazing feel whan playing a straight beat. The bottom cymbal is thicker than the one on top. I'm currently playing in a versatile band, and this pair really works for almost all kinds of music! Easy to clean too! I totally recommend buying this product...

Zildjian Quality.

By thomas tate

from Tacoma Wa

Zildjian cymbals are created by one of the oldest businesses in the world. 360 years of constant research and developement along with dedicated craftmanship pays off again with these Mastersound A Custom Hats. I was looking for a pair of 13's, just for the sake of size. I have a peculiar body arrangement so it seems, and thought smaller hats would help with my angles. Anyway, I happened upon these 14's, and fell in love with the sound and stick response. Bought them. Got a great deal, but would have paid full price. These are the Stradivarius of hihats. If you have the money, and are serious about your instrument,this is a no brainer. With all the choices out there it can be difficult to choose. Do yourself a favor, think 360 years of proven quality and passion behind your choice of a top of the line product. You cannot go wrong.

Great Brand, Great product

By Michael

from Dalton, Ga

I have had these since about 08' and they're just great. Name Brand and High priced is only a fluke half the time, but I will say that these are definitley worth their price but I promise that you can probably buy them for the price of $250.00. I'm telling you that you dont have to just come out and pay what they're asking for something. Because they are listening for a reasonable offer.

THE Best.

By Aaron Murray

from Ventura, California

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!

Cutting edge!

By Richard Denson

from Richmond,Texas

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.
