The best!

By Roberto Melendez

from Van Nuys, California.

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.

Nice Hi-hats

By Alexander Castillos

from El Salvador

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.

By Nick

from MN

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.

K Zildjian Still Lives Up To It's Legend

By Gretscher2600

from Eastford, CT

The Zildjian K Custom Dark Hi-Hat pair is one of the best hi-hats I've ever played. When you start playing you can't stop! It has an awesome sound and they produce that perfect "chick" sound. They're incredible and perfect. I highly recommend them and I urge you to pay every dollar you have to buy these hi-hats.

Best hi-hats on earth

By washpooldrummer

from Butler, WI

I've been playing for about 6 years, and played a lot of sets. I can honestly say that these are the best hi-hats. They are so crisp and clean with a nice dark edge to them. Their tone is perfect and the sound is so pure. They are very quick and smooth awesome for all types of playing.
