These were the first pair of hi-hats I bought. I've had them for 22 years. I've played hundreds of gigs, recordings, and practices. These are immortal. Great sound. I guess they have acquired a darker sound over the years, and I love them now more so. I don't need any other pair of hi-hats. These will do the trick for any gig, recording, and music type.

I was very disappointed with these. I'm typically a Zildjian man and have heard nothing but praise about the new beat hi-hats. I have A Series all around (16" thin crash, 18" medium thin crash, 18" crash ride) except for my hi hats which are Sabian B8's, and while they're decent, especially for the price, I was looking to complete a cohesive set of A Series Cymbals. I was eager to take these out of the box and install them onto the stand, but was horrified by what I heard upon playing them. Not only are they incredibly shrill and high pitched, but there is a terrible ringing sound that accompanies the tone, and they're somewhat noisy as well. I was so displeased with them that I returned them and am sticking with my $80 B8's for now, and this is coming from a Zildjian person.

    15" is the perfect size......the perfect balance of the classic Zildjian chick sound with the modern washy sound that we all love. I would highly recommend to any drummer.

          Comments about Zildjian A Series New Beat Hi-Hat Cymbal Pair:

          They are Zildjian New Beats... how much more iconic can you get? Though their sound has changed over time from the '60s to now, they are still the same quintessential sound that all other hi hats are measured against. But, you know this because, otherwise, you wouldn't be considering them. I offer this: sometimes, for me, the sound is too "classic." I've owned three pairs of hi hats: Sabian HHX Evo's, Sabian AAX Metal Hats, and these. My favorites? The AAX Metal Hats. They fit me and my style of music. The Sabian HHX Evo's were a let down, and I got rid of them. Don't get me wrong, they sounded great, but my expectation of them was over the top, and they were just regular, everyday, good-sounding hats. As far as the New Beats? They're great too, but don't let your expectations run away from you. They sound good with any genre of music; they are that classic, quintessential hat sound. No more, no less. I have them on my practice kit at the house. They are durable and sound great, and if I ever need them to fill any gap, they'll always be standing by.

                  Remarkable improvement from our previous kit's hi-hats. Attack was sharp and clear and balanced as well as improved responsiveness for opening and closing. Can't go wrong.

                      Great pair of hats and the chick is awesome. Can't go wrong with these. I got the 13", but have played both and decided to go with something different for me for a change. I've played 14" for years. Love these hats and looking forward to many years of service.

                          I got the 13" pair and love them! I had a pair of 12" special recording hats and these beat them hands down in my opinion. Very nice chick and nice wash when partially open. Wouldn't trade them for anything....well, you get the point. I think the other 70 something reviews are all in agreement as 4 or 5 star hats.
