          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 kirchenschlager

          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 Anonymous

          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!

          Worth it anytime

          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

          By Joey drummer

          from San Antonio

          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.

          By JB-C.b3R

          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!

          Amazing!!!!

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

          I bought these hats recently, the 14", and they blew me away. There perfect for funk and jazz, but I play in a hard rock band, and they sound exactly how I want them to there too. The only reason I gave them a 4 for value was because they're so expensive! But still, it was worth it?

          So Good

          By Anonymous

          from Undisclosed

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

          I am to switch from Sabian AAX hi hats to these. In addition to a great feel, these hats produce a pleasing, professional sound that blends with every style of music. I would always play a set that had these hats when rehearsing with my band, and I am in love with their rich and pleasing sound. They also cut through the mix when playing live, but they are versatile and dynamic enough to be used for studio use also. Although they are a bit expensive, I have not regretted the purchase for a second. One thing I like to do with these hi-hats is play the bottom one on the top and vice versa, it gives them a slightly different sound and also gives extra emphasis on the "chick" when pedaling the hats.
