      Comments about Zildjian K Custom Dark Hi-Hat Cymbal Pair:

      I had a 1978 pair of 15" heavy Rock Ziljians that have been in my every gig and recording since 1980. Still have them but was time to replace as some tiny chips starting showing on the bottom hat. These sound really close to the same , but have a better "SCHHHSH" sound than mine ever did. And they got here in three days!! I love them,,and only buy from M.F.

              Comments about Zildjian K Custom Dark Hi-Hat Cymbal Pair:

              I purchased these as a replacement to a pair of Zildjian
              15" New Beats. The New Beats were damaged when a monitor fell on the top cymbal and turned it "inside out". I pushed the cymbal back into shape, but that great "chick" was gone. When choosing the K Custom Dark pair I noticed they were not available in 15" diameter. The larger diameter hats have always been my first choice. I took the chance of ordering the 14" diameter, and I'm certainly glad I did. I simply can't say enough about these hi-hat cymbals. The sound is phenomenal. They are called dark for a reason. They are responsive with a wide range of of frequency. You may find other brands that are as good. You will not find any better.

              GREAT JAZZ HATS

              By 

              from Kodiak, AK

              Comments about Zildjian K Custom Dark Hi-Hat Cymbal Pair:

              i got these hi hats for christmas, and they take a couple hours to break in.. but once you do, they sound amazing. the dark sound is perfect for jazz and funk, and they are really heavy. they slosh quite nice. as for rock, you probably want to go with mastersound hi hats. my teacher has mastersounds and they sound great for any style. but as i said, if you want the best funk/jazz hats, these are the golden ticket. and if you do play rock with them, they arent like bad, just a bit dark for rock. they still sound good for it though.

              A Truly Musical Hi-Hat

              By 

              from Undisclosed

              Comments about Zildjian K Custom Dark Hi-Hat Cymbal Pair:

              I purchased a set of K Custom 14" Dark Hi-hats last month and am amazed. I am mainly using these in an acoustical church setting where volume, accent, and musical nuance is very important. These provide total control and amazing musicality. They are versatile as you move through the tension on the Hi-hat, providing infinite possibilities (from 'chick' to full 'washy' sound). It blows away many other Zildjian hats I've had in the past. If you can find a good deal on these hi-hats... BUY THEM!

              Comments about Zildjian K Custom Dark Hi-Hat Cymbal Pair:

              These are BEAUTIFULLY toned. The chick is bright and could be a little lighter, but I am 100% satified anyway. The semi-open sound is incredible, it's so nice and washy, no sound of cymbals clanging together.Of course they're a little overpriced but I would still buy these again anyday.

              Great pair of hats if you have the money

              Comments about Zildjian K Custom Dark Hi-Hat Cymbal Pair:

              These hats are really great to play with! They are really dark and funky but sound great in any style. I have had these for about 5 years now and at first didnt really care for the sound but they really grew on me! Beginners may not care for them at first. I play with the bottom on the top and they sound heavy and really cut through! If you have the money they are an awesome set to have

              Huge improvement over starter cymbals.

              from New Hampshire

              Comments about Zildjian K Custom Dark Hi-Hat Cymbal Pair:

              14" Pair: These are a huge improvement over the Zildjian 'starter' cymbals (read "pressed"). These have a nice warm, dark tone with great overtones. I am inclined to play these as a ride some times for an extra accent. Sizzles are just nice, and will cut through when needed or can be quite mellow if played lightly, just get the bottom cymbal's tilt correct. There is none of that pingy sound here. Chicks are defined. There is a usable bell. These will last a lifetime. Finish is lovely. They are heavy so will need some extra spring adjustment to the stand.

              I have had these hi hats for well over 5 years now and they have not let me down once! These cymbals are durable and sound good playing any type of music. I suggest that if you are looking a for an awsome pair of hi hats to go buy this!
