Comments about Zildjian K Custom Dark Hi-Hat Cymbal Pair:

I had a 1978 pair of 15" heavy Rock Ziljians that have been in my every gig and recording since 1980. Still have them but was time to replace as some tiny chips starting showing on the bottom hat. These sound really close to the same , but have a better "SCHHHSH" sound than mine ever did. And they got here in three days!! I love them,,and only buy from M.F.

          Comments about Zildjian K Custom Dark Hi-Hat Cymbal Pair:

          I purchased these as a replacement to a pair of Zildjian
          15" New Beats. The New Beats were damaged when a monitor fell on the top cymbal and turned it "inside out". I pushed the cymbal back into shape, but that great "chick" was gone. When choosing the K Custom Dark pair I noticed they were not available in 15" diameter. The larger diameter hats have always been my first choice. I took the chance of ordering the 14" diameter, and I'm certainly glad I did. I simply can't say enough about these hi-hat cymbals. The sound is phenomenal. They are called dark for a reason. They are responsive with a wide range of of frequency. You may find other brands that are as good. You will not find any better.

          The best!

          By Roberto Melendez

          from Van Nuys, California.

          Comments about Zildjian K Custom Dark Hi-Hat Cymbal Pair:

          These hi-hats will be the best you can find. The sound is so crisp you will want to keep stroking the hi-hats all day long. I play them at church and they sound amazing. I find that they even sound better when played with thin drum sticks like a 7A drum stick. The truth is, you won't be disappointed if you buy these hi-hats. Zildjian K's are the best.

          GREAT JAZZ HATS

          By kirchenschlager

          from Kodiak, AK

          Comments about Zildjian K Custom Dark Hi-Hat Cymbal Pair:

          i got these hi hats for christmas, and they take a couple hours to break in.. but once you do, they sound amazing. the dark sound is perfect for jazz and funk, and they are really heavy. they slosh quite nice. as for rock, you probably want to go with mastersound hi hats. my teacher has mastersounds and they sound great for any style. but as i said, if you want the best funk/jazz hats, these are the golden ticket. and if you do play rock with them, they arent like bad, just a bit dark for rock. they still sound good for it though.

          A Truly Musical Hi-Hat

          By Anonymous

          from Undisclosed

          Comments about Zildjian K Custom Dark Hi-Hat Cymbal Pair:

          I purchased a set of K Custom 14" Dark Hi-hats last month and am amazed. I am mainly using these in an acoustical church setting where volume, accent, and musical nuance is very important. These provide total control and amazing musicality. They are versatile as you move through the tension on the Hi-hat, providing infinite possibilities (from 'chick' to full 'washy' sound). It blows away many other Zildjian hats I've had in the past. If you can find a good deal on these hi-hats... BUY THEM!

          Nice Hi-hats

          By Alexander Castillos

          from El Salvador

          Comments about Zildjian K Custom Dark Hi-Hat Cymbal Pair:

          I have receive my hi-hats up to my country El Salvador, I̴��m very satisfied today that I play with them. Now I know what means Custom Dark, I would prefer more brilliant sound but it̴��s ok. Is one special hi-hat and I love it. I don̴��t give 5 Stars because the sound of my 14" hi-hat needs a little little piece of bright sound to be completly perfect. I would like to listen the 13" hi-hat in order to make the comparation. Bye I need to play them.

          Amazing

          By Nick

          from MN

          Comments about Zildjian K Custom Dark Hi-Hat Cymbal Pair:

          I've been looking for some new hi hats for a couple years. At first glance at the title of these, I thought dark would give these a heavy sound that I did not want. After hearing these hi hats for the first time, I was sold right then. They are simply perfect for any style of music. I bought the 13's because I like a very light but still loud sound and wow is it perfect. If you can't hear them in person, go to Zildian's website and listen to an audio sample of these- it's pretty much the exact same thing. I've been drumming for 9+ years and these are now my favorite cymbals.

          Worth it anytime

          Comments about Zildjian K Custom Dark Hi-Hat Cymbal Pair:

          These are BEAUTIFULLY toned. The chick is bright and could be a little lighter, but I am 100% satified anyway. The semi-open sound is incredible, it's so nice and washy, no sound of cymbals clanging together.Of course they're a little overpriced but I would still buy these again anyday.
