      OVERVIEW

      New K Zildjians made with the input of the ultimate groove master!

      The Zildjian K Custom Session Hi-Hat Cymbals were designed with Steve Gadd and feature his distinctive cymbal sound.

The resulting hi-hats feature a 13-15/16" medium-weight top, 14" medium-thin bottom, and have a sharp, defined "chick." Like Gadd himself, the K Custom Session cymbals are versatile enough for any playing and recording situation.

          These are a GREAT sounding pair of hats. lovely wash and very sweet. all round a beautiful sound. HOWEVER, due to the smaller top hat, the protruding bottom hat chews up the shoulder of your stick really quickly. it's a real shame, although it's the design of the hat that gives it's great sound. it's just not economical unless you get your sticks for free like gadd!

          Art the Percussion Wizard-Session Hi-Hat Review

          By The Wizard of Prog

          from Morris County, New Jersey

          Comments about Zildjian K Custom Session Hi-Hat Cymbals:

          These are by far the best hats I have ever played. They cut through anything in live play. These things don't even need to be mic'd unless your playing a big place. I played these things outdoors at a private party and they didn't need any help. In fact I gave the bass player to the left of my kit a headache from the loudness of them, LOL.They sound rich, they sizzle when you want them to and they play hard for rock as well.price is rough but you won't need to search any longer.

          These are special!

          Comments about Zildjian K Custom Session Hi-Hat Cymbals:

          Stunning hi hats. When you play them they make they put a smile on your face. I've used A projections, briefly, didn't like them, too brash. I have and still use K Custom Dark 13"s - lovely, but the Session knocks spots off them. I've just bought my dream DW collector's kit and together they are awesome. With these you just know they'll cover all styles with grace and presence - and with the respect of other musicians. 5 star hats. I gave a 4.5 for value - they are "reassuringly expensive" !!

          K'Sweet

          Comments about Zildjian K Custom Session Hi-Hat Cymbals:

          Odd set of Hats, in a good way. The top is heavier than the bottom and the bottom is hammered like an A... smooth, hammer marks barely noticeable for a K. The bottom is smaller (1mm) but not enough to notice. Top is hammered overtime, even the bell is struck.What all this adds up to is a quality sounding pair of hats. The foot chick is loud, but K dark/mellow, which is stand-out IMO.Also cool; with the 'heavy' on top, the sound 'seems' to emanate predominantly from the top of the Hats, everything you play is heard clearly.Top cymbal, with its abundant hammering and weight (M) will sizzle nicely when played softly, which is a 'gadd' send for low volume music; these hats sound sweet, they cream-out at low volume and the sound is K Heaven... its called 'playability' and its abundant. For some strange reason (top/heavy(?)) the Gadd K Custom Sessions have more 'cut' than regular K's. You think heavy-top and stiffness come to mind, not with Gadd Session, these hats are very musical. Try and play a set. Very dynamic, rich sounding. Expensive, but something you probably won't ever want to part with.

          Beautiful Hats

          By Anonymous

          from Undisclosed

          Comments about Zildjian K Custom Session Hi-Hat Cymbals:

          These things are just beautiful. Some earlier review states that these may sound weird to a beginner, but Id have to say I disagree, as these are great general purpose hats, and really sound absolutely how a great pair of hats should sound. I was playing with 14'' A-Custom hats that just were not doing it for me, very high frequency, just felt strange, a bit hollow, didn't meld with the rock music im playing very well, and was so-so when I recorded them. Def not a typical Hat sound imo.. My A-Custom Crash is awesome though. Anyhow, I dropped these K-Custom Session hats on the stand and had a jam, and wow, really, perfect. Its a classy sound.. They're warm, but not overly dark, crisp enough in both sound and feel, chicks well, washes well, again, has a great feel, and also looks good. My search for sublime hhats has ended, im sure for a long while, and all I have to focus on now is is the perfect RHCrash. You will make no mistake picking these puppies up, the price for admission is completely worth it in this case.

          Super Hi Hats for Rock and Blues

          By ClassicDrummer

          from Murrysville, PA

          Comments about Zildjian K Custom Session Hi-Hat Cymbals:

          The Zildjian K Custom Session Hi Hats are by far the best Hi Hats I have ever owned. I used Zildjian New Beats for over 30 years and when I heard these, I couldn't believe the sound. You can close them up for an articulate chk sound and articulate stick work and open them up for a nice wash. they have a full, deep sound without being dull. A must have for Rock and Blues.

          Not much to say. These will not fail you for ANY type of music you are looking to play for. A little expensive (on my budget), but worth every penny.

          These hats are exactly what I needed. With a lighter top and heavier bottom, it's easy to get the dynamics you want.Tone quality, chick, wash, everything - exactly what a drummer looks for in hihats.

          K Custom

          Comments about Zildjian K Custom Session Hi-Hat Cymbals:

          I have owned Ziljians for 45 years, and recently upgraded to the K Custon line, excellent tonal quality, crisp sharp delenation of the stroke. Good bounce, excellent sound overall. Made a good choice, price is well worth the product.
