Comments about Zildjian K Constantinople Hi-Hat Top:

I purchased two Constantinople hi-hat tops, and one Zildjian Avedis Mastersound bottom hat. This bottom hat is fairly heavy, and has wavy edges, which are great for the perfect chick. All cymbols vary in weight and brightness of tone. Of my two top hats, the thinner (lower pitched) top hat I use as a ride/crash/splash cymbol, for which it is impressive. Beautiful complexity of sound due to its thinness and hammering. The brighter top hat I use with the Mastersound bottom, to give an awesome sound that is both jazz oriented, but with some projection and a beautiful clean chick, making it useful for more than just jazz. For worship, it is unsurpassed. For pure jazz, I use the brighter (heavier) top hat as a bottom, and the lighter one as the top hat. This gives a more jazz oriented sound than I have found from any other cymbol.
The above top and bottom combinations are, in my opinion, superior to the use of the matched top and bottom Constantinople hat sets offered by Zildjian. The standard bottom hat lacks the wavy edges, and seems less heavy than the Mastersound. I feel that the Mastersound gave the better chick. The use of a top hat as a bottom gives me a richer, more jazz-oriented sound, when that is desired. With these three cymbols I have a faily wide flexibility of sound.
Most other hi-hats have a clanging sound that is offensive to me. I may be more of a novice as a drummer, but I have a demanding ear for tone.
I STRONGLY recommend the Zildjian Constantinople top hat.
