OVERVIEW

Tight, controlled sound with pinpoint definition and a clean, clear 'chick.'

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.

    Comments about Zildjian A Series Special Recording Hi-Hat Pair:

    I do not own these cymbals, but my school does, and I can't use them enough! These are high quality hihats, and I'm trying to save up to get pair myself.
    I have done musicals, wind ensembles, orchestras, percussion ensembles, jazz bands, other gigs, recording, and everything in between, and these are by far the best cymbals I could hope to use

    Zildjian A Series Special Recording Hi-Hats

    By Rick Nelson

    from North Carolina

    Comments about Zildjian A Series Special Recording Hi-Hat Pair:

    Very pleased with purchase
    We purchased these for use by the Duke Jazz Ensemble - I was skeptical because I have not used 12" hats before - I must say these exceeded expectations by a wide margin - crisp and clean with sticks and brushes and the "chick" of the foot pedal could be heard cleanly anywhere in the house, without the hats being miced - this was for live shows, recording these must be a real treat. Our drummer who didn't want to use them ended up admitting he will be purchasing a pair for himself. Overall a pair of excellent sounding hi-hats.
    Zildjian Quality. Period.
    These were a little pricey compared to other models, but I am pleased we chose them after hearing them played.

    best hi hat

    By DJazzman

    from Montreal,QC

    Comments about Zildjian A Series Special Recording Hi-Hat Pair:

    These cymbals are great, might be the greatest or one of the greatest cymbal i ve ever heard and play with. I tried those at my local music stor which is Steve music, and then threason why I put 4 for the value is really simple, I could buy those for this price with the taxes, so, if you compare you ll see that is a little problem. Finally this cymbal that I will buy are for sure one pair you must buy if you want to record or just to play around or live sounds.

    Great!

    By Steve-cYrYw

    from Kentucky

    Comments about Zildjian A Series Special Recording Hi-Hat Pair:

    I bought the 12" SR hats about a month ago and I couldn't be happier. The bell has a nice clean, high pitch as expected. The shoulder and edges are somewhat defined too. To get a nice sizzle the bottom hat has to be tilted to remain in contact with the top. I would play rock with them as an auxillary, but they could certainly be used as primary hats. As the name implies, SR hats would be great for recording as the definition is excellent. I highly recommend these hi-hats.

    I was in Guitar center looking for some chimes but didn't see any thing. So I was on my way out the store, then I heard this sound one of the drum tech was playing with them, they was used but they was in great shape and sound great. So I bought these 12" hi-hat. I coundn't wait to get home to play them. Those are the sweeted sound I had ever heard these are my number one hi-hat I won't turn back now because I'am hook.
