I went to Guitar center to pick up some Sabian hats, but the sales guy brought these out and suggested I tried them out. Wow, I'm glad he did. These hats are loud and sound great. Loud and defined chick when played with the pedal, very defined when played closed, and a great sloshy sound when played loose.

These hats are perfect for me. I mainly played rock styles, but I messed around with a funk grooves and these made my playing sound so much better, too.

I'll keep this short and sweet. I bought the 13in A Customs to replace my 14in ZHT Mastersound Zildjians. I was not impressed. Playing them closed was amazing. They sound great. Playing them open is a different story. Not a good sound at all. The ZHTs sound way better open. Save your money and buy a new crash like I'm going to.

Just Right

By Anonymous

from Undisclosed

Comments about Zildjian A Custom Hi-Hat Pair:

I bought these hi-hats right off one of the sets at a store and they are perfect. I play mostly rock and jazz. The sond they make when held open and played is perfect for the rock songs, and the sizzle they give is perfect for jazz. Well worth the money.

Best Hats for Anyone

By StrongArmLawDrummer

from Mastic NY

See all my reviews

Comments about Zildjian A Custom Hi-Hat Pair:

The cymbals are actually my guitarist's, he used to be a drummer, and they're the best hats I've ever played. I have the 13" pair which has a clean definable "chick" which can be heard clearly when using the ride cymbal. The open sound is crisp with a nice medium length decay that's pleasant the hear. I would recommend these cymbals to any drummer considering mine have been played on for over 6 years and they haven't changed a bit over the years of use.

Versatile

Comments about Zildjian A Custom Hi-Hat Pair:

I've owned my 14" A custom hi-hats for over six years and they're still holding up. They are crisp, and subtle, yet very versatile. I've played all types of music with these and they've never sounded out of place. They're not the loudest hi- hats but they sound amazing. If you're looking for something a little louder and fuller I'd go for the A zildjian new beats, or if youre looking for a warmer sound, K hi-hats.

Excellent Hi-Hats

By Supa Dave

Comments about Zildjian A Custom Hi-Hat Pair:

Amazing hi-hats. A definite versaile cymbal. I ordered the 13" pair and am extremely satisfied. I recieved them the day of a gig as a gift for the band. I play guitar and could hear the extreme difference these hi-hats brought to our sound. In my opinion: one of the best hi-hats on the market.

Solid Upgrade

Comments about Zildjian A Custom Hi-Hat Pair:

Originally had horrible Sabian b8 hats for starters, and finally upgraded. Tryed out several Zildjian hats, and these ones by far have the most versatility. They play great closed, and give you a solid wash open as well.

Comments about Zildjian A Custom Hi-Hat Pair:

These hi hats are absolutley amazing. I just got them about 2 weeks ago to replace my 14" B8 Pro hats, and there really is no comparison. These are incredible. Look past the price and buy them now.
