Overview

ZHT Mastersound hi-hats give you bold, melodic sound with full-bodied presence.

For their ZHT series Zildjian chose Ultimate Sheet Bronze, an alloy with a higher tin content for enhanced low- and mid-frequencies. This extraordinarily musical metal is combined with ultra-modern manufacturing techniques and extensive hammering to create value-priced cymbals with sounds that are both modern and traditional.

Zildjian creates their Mastersound hi-hats using innovative hammering techniques on the outer rim of the bottom hi-hat cymbal, resulting in alternating raised and lowered contact points that facilitate rapid air release. This creates a noticeably faster and cleaner "chick" sound, without sacrificing body in the overall sound of the cymbals.

ive been playing on some beat up sabian b8's for a while and i just got these a few days ago. wow, these hats are amazing. while theyre closed the 'chick'is perfect, really crisp. they sizzle wonderfully when you play them slightly opened. sounds great for rock like i play. if youre on a budjet, theres no way you can do better for the price. 5 stars all the way

            The Sweet Spot in Value

            By Richard Golladay

            from Virginia

            Comments about Zildjian ZHT Mastersound Hi-Hats Cymbal Pair:

            I have 40+ years experience and have used A's, K's, K Customs, Paiste 602's & 2002's and Sabian AAX's. I needed a good pair of reasonably priced, but not cheap junk, hats for a rehearsal kit. I checked out a pair of 14" ZHT Mastersounds and bought them because they sounded far better than I expected. I've had them two years now and like them a lot. They definately out perform their price range and I have since bought the 14" standard hats and like them a lot also. I have one kit that is all K's and K Customs. Two other kits I am using the same set-up of 20" K Custom Dark Ride, 16", 17" & 18" ZHT Fast Crashes and the 14" ZHT Hats. Incredible bang for the buck. The other ZHT's I have tried I have not cared much for but the ones listed above, to me are the "sweet spot".

            Comments about Zildjian ZHT Mastersound Hi-Hats Cymbal Pair:

            I'm a sort-of beginner percussionist (8th grade.) I bought these hats myself last Christmas and they are gonna be my only hats for a while. I have a Pearl Rhythm Traveler and it doesn't overpower anything (except the wimpy bass drum.) They have a very glassy and sharp closed sound, but a little sketchy open sound (only good if you can get them to where they barely sizzle.) They're extremely durable, and a great buy for a beginner or a professional. I may not be the best 13 year old musician, but i play guitar (better) and concert percussion, and these are awesome. GET THEM.

            If you're looking to upgrade from ZBT hats go with these. They aren't that expensive but they sound great. Comparable to some of the higher-end high hats out there. Great closed and opened sound.

            What can I say, these hats are really nice! I originally purchased the Sabian B8 Pro rock hats, but went to Guitar Center and exchanged those for these awesome sounding hats. They have a crisp sound to them that I was looking for. The best part about it is that I didn't empty my bank account by buying hi-hat cymbals. Awesome bang for the buck; would recommend these hats to anyone!!!!

            Zildjian ZHT Mastersound Hats

            By C4103

            from Hartford, CT

            Comments about Zildjian ZHT Mastersound Hi-Hats Cymbal Pair:

            I've owned these hats for about a half a year now. I've played quite a lot of different cymbals, and these are still my favorite. The Mastersound ripple is great and really gives them a lot of sustain and edge. If you keep the bottom hat slightly tilted, the foot pedal sound is very unique because you can hear each individual ripple from the bottom hat hitting the top. The only hats I would consider over these would be the A Custom Mastersounds or a set of Paistes. However, we all know how expensive either of those choices would be. If you're trying to spread your budget out across your drums, then these are an excellent compromise. I have them paired with a Zildjian & CIE Vintage 20'' Ride, a 20'' Zildjian Scimitar Ride, a 17'' Zildjian Fast Crash, a vintage Zildjian 20'' Crash / Ride and a 4 inch Zildjian Splash.
