OVERVIEW

Short, tight, funky beat.

The A Series Zildjian is the world's most popular and versatile cymbal. Created from cast bronze alloy of 80% copper, 20% tin, and traces of silver, it is symmetrically machine hammered and lathed with a traditional wide groove. The result is an exuberant cymbal that bursts with a classic voice that is pure, bright, and expressive. The Quick Beats have an especially fast response with 4 holes in the bottom that allow quick air release.

Me= Spoiled. - Simply the best for me.

Comments about Zildjian A Series Quick Beat Hi-Hat Pair:

I purchased my brilliant finish 14 inch quick beats in 1988...and have been using them ever since. I played full time back then, and still play full time (and teach) today. I play a variety of music from rock to jazz, country funk and even disco. These hats are perfect for everything - they don't just "fit in"...they make EVERY genre sound good. I'll never buy another set of hats again (unless someone steals my Quick beats)- but then I'll just happily purchase another set.

Quick Beat, Long Lasting

By Jimi Muller

from Milton, NH

See all my reviews

Comments about Zildjian A Series Quick Beat Hi-Hat Pair:

I've owned the 13" Quick Beat hats for around three years now and absolutely love them. When closed they have a bright and crisp chick. When played semi-open, these hats truly shine. The holes cut in the bottom cymbal create a very defining sound. There's no washy sound, just smooth perfection.Stick response is amazing. I've played these anywhere from jazz-style to hard rock to a more metalish style. These can hold up to the heavy hitters too.Hands down, a very solid investment.

A 10-year love of these smoothies.

By Nate-DNtbB

from Jefferson City, MO

Comments about Zildjian A Series Quick Beat Hi-Hat Pair:

I've played these for nearly ten years and wouldn't trade them or consider any others their equal in tone, speed, clarity or articulation!!! Don't miss these, I've had the opportunity to play others and other people have played these and become dissatisfied with what they had to take home in the end. I am not sold out on any one brand, however, Zildjian got it right on these. I'd say they make most others sound like cheap "Camber" Hi-Hats

30+ years and still great!

By Bishop-xcJV9

from Illinois

Comments about Zildjian A Series Quick Beat Hi-Hat Pair:

I've been using the same Zildjian quick beat hi-hats for over 30 years now and the still sound great. I've tried other brands and types and keep coming back to these. Once you get use to the responsiveness the air hole in the bottom hi-hat gives regular hi-hats don't seem right. They sound full and bright. I've always been proud of them.

Zildjian 14

By DJazz

from Cincinnati

Comments about Zildjian A Series Quick Beat Hi-Hat Pair:

I have been using these Avedis 14" Quick Beat HH's since 1986. IMHO, these are the most versitile set of hats on the market. Quick...sure because of the holes in the bottom hat. Smooth...without a doubt. Hot...not as much for recording because they are quite thick and the appropriate mic's are required to catch their full range. However, for live gigs, they hit when you need them to, just open-em-up a bit. Crisp & clear...PERFECT. I use a 1975 Gretch 6" snare and the tight combination is perfect. If you're looking for a Crisp-tight-smooth set of Hats...then these are for you. DJazz~>

Great multi-purpose high hats

By TimeFavorsNoOne-87nA0

from Greensboro, NC

See all my reviews

Comments about Zildjian A Series Quick Beat Hi-Hat Pair:

I originally bought these to use in an alternative rock band, and they were great. They cut well but weren't overpowering, and have a real crisp sound due to the vents on the bottom hat. Took them on tour and they held up well. I've just recently started using them as jazz hats too, they're easy to keep soft and again, the crisp "chick" blends well. I don't have anything bad to say about these, definitely recommended.
