The top is to heavy to be a utility hat.

By Steve Royal

from Austin, Texas

Comments about Zildjian K Hi-Hats:

See features above
I bought these thinking they had a thiner top because I played another drummers K hat and they were perfect. Those must have been the thiner top that I didn't get when I ordered the K's. They work great for loud washy rock, they cut and rock the wash. But when I went to play the history of Blues and Jazz, I couldn't get the top to move fast enough and it was like trying to move a brick. Playing the Jimi Hendrix book was great with this hat as long as I didn't try to do any of the Raymond Weber (Dr John's new drummer - RIP Herman Riley) constant left hand snare to hi hat to snare thing, prevalent in NOLA. This K hat is not a funk hat. Jeffrey "Jellybean" Alexander (Papa Grows Funk) has 13 K/Z's he got by accident and loves them. They cut through their loud stage volume, are lightning fast, and wash as well. I'm ordering 13" K/Z's and keeping the 14 K's for a rockin or blues wash day at the big stage although the K/Z's may overtake that aspect of the K's as well.
They're K's
They were plenty loud for a blues gig where there was a singular large diaphram kick drum mic that shook the street outside the club. So, I had to rim the snare and have lots of cym gain to keep up, not ot mention form fit ear protection to avoid deafness. This 14" K hat has the gain for triple forte with ease. When I wanted to get quickness out of the top hat for funk I died a terrible bipolar death. The K hat is not utility enough with that medium thickness slower responding top. It sounds superlative for blues and rock. I won't sell the K's after I get the K/Z's because they sound so great.

Great Hats

Comments about Zildjian K Hi-Hats:

I had just recently bought the Gretsch Energy five piece shell pack and I knew I didn't want cheap cymbals. I had a drum set when I was in my teens as well as owned a cheap pair of hats along with it, you know, the Pulse Percussion set, the one that makes you cringe everytime you hear someone play it. This go around I bit the bullet, and did extensive research on the sound I really wanted through mycymbal.com and other means, just keep in mind that if you want a great drum sound you need to
1. Learn to tune your drums
2. Buy pro cymbals
If you can acheive this you will have a good sound, and having a good sound in my eyes builds confidence when you play, even if your a beginner.
I like these cymbals for me and they might not be for you but I must say I love these hats, a bit expensive, but no regrets.
Top quality and made in the US, which I love.
I like to play Indie, indie dance, electro, disco, blah blah blah.

Comments about Zildjian K Hi-Hats:

I was in the music shop I played about 20 pairs of hi hat's every way I could, some were, Paiste sig. dark crisp, paiste 2002, A cust. Master sound, A master sound, Z cust. Master sound, A new beat, Hand Hammered fusion, I decided A cust. reguler was the best for price and sound I was about to buy them, then I saw some K's(bf) that weren't set up, so I set them up and fell in love, I am veary happy with them, dark but not too dark, high but not to high, full, clean, crisp, I love them.

Best Hats Ever!

By Anonymous

from Undisclosed

Comments about Zildjian K Hi-Hats:

I previousl have used Sabian HHX Groove Hats and was looking for a dryer, crisper sound without losing the dark, warm sound I like out of cymbals. These hats delivered just that and more. They honestly have it all. Dark, warm tones with a crisp clean attack. Beautiful wash when open and nice clean foot chick. I couldnt see a style of music that these hats wouldnt be amazing at. They're not cheap but definitely worth every penny!

Warm, Clean, and Responsive

By Aaron H.

from Pasadena, CA

Comments about Zildjian K Hi-Hats:

These are unquestionably the best pair of Hi-Hats I've ever owned over the last 28 years of playing. They are warm, clean, responsive, and with very rich overtones. If you're a fan of the late Tony Williams, this is the kind of tone these Hi-Hats deliver. They are a little pricey, but these are the kind of cymbals that you keep for life and pass down to the next generation who can appreciate them. My only small problem with them is that they will get that pocket of air if they are set up straight up and down without an angle. I've been spoiled by the holes in the bottom like the Quick Beats. However, just remember to angle them a little, and you shouldn't have much of a problem with the cancellation effect. Overall, this is a product you will fall in love with for the longterm.

UNDOUBTEDLY the best Hi-Hats EVER!

By JaredTheMusicMan

from Washington State

See all my reviews

Comments about Zildjian K Hi-Hats:

I am an extremely picky drummer. I freak out if one of my toms doesn't sound just right in tune with the rest. And I am MOST picky of about my cymbals, ESPECIALLY the hi-hats. I've gone through 5 pairs of hi-hats over the last 2 years (sabian, paiste, istanbul) and finally found the perfect pair: Zildjian K Hi-Hats. They have a crisp, tight, musical "chick" to them that melts my face off when I listen to it recorded in my studio. The wash of them open is full and rich. They also happen to be the best looking hats around too! Just know that I am not quick to give positive feedback about something. If you are a drummer from ANY genre (rock, fusion, jazz, metal) give these hats a try. For me, they're best suited for my Jazz/Rock needs... THANK YOU ZILDJIAN! I know why these hats are so expensive now :)

Comments about Zildjian K Hi-Hats:

I am an intermediate/advanced drummer and I was in some desperate need of new hi-hats. My old 13" ZBT's just weren't doing the job for me anymore. I was lucky enough to find these (14") on sale for only $200 and I bought them without hesitation. Since then, I have been enjoying these very much. The sound quality is incredible. I highly reccommend these.

      Comments about Zildjian K Hi-Hats:

      You will hit cymbals by themselves, this is where cheap stuff fools the ear. Most of the time the less expensive gear sounds a lot fuller than the expensive gear when played by themselves. In the mix of the band the professional stuff does its job and nothing else which is what you want. They will have you buying EQ's so you can try and take out all the unwanted frequencies (of the cheap gear). I am not saying its impossible but start with a good source and its a down hill ride.

      Comments about Zildjian K Hi-Hats:

      I use these hi hats in a jazz band for my school. They are absolutely amazing. They have that crisp "chick" sound. They are expensive, too expensive for me, but I still use them(cause they aren't mine) :) but if you aren't on a budget, I definantly recomend these hi hats.

      Comments about Zildjian K Hi-Hats:

      The K Hi-Hats I pretty good. I have a 13-inch pair and they are great. I don't like the pitch of it, though the chick is awesome. It's really great for jazz, but not so much for rock.

      K hats

      By Anonymous

      from Undisclosed

      Comments about Zildjian K Hi-Hats:

      These are good hats but the 13" can become kind of muddy and hard to get good stick definition. From an audio engineers perspective they sound great especially in a recording setting. These are a good addition to your favorite hats but shouldn't be your first and only choice at a gig.

      These are an excellent pair of Hats

      By Brandon V.

      from Cape Cod, MA

      See all my reviews

      Comments about Zildjian K Hi-Hats:

      I own a 13" pair of these hats. I use them primarily for lower-volume practice. The K Zildjian formula has been around for over a century, and they are (arguably) the most well made cymbals in the world. I myself am a cymbal enthusiast. I currently own a set of both Paiste and Zildjian K cymbals, so my opinions are based on a broad spectrum of experience with many different cymbals. If you like to play jazz, funk, blues, fusion, possibly even hip-hop; also lower-volume acoustic jams, and of course in the studio, these hats are going to work wonderfully for you. However, I would certainly not reccomend you use these in your hard rock band; they're just not made to played heavy or too loud. The top cymbal is very thin, which gives it a wonderful dry & dark sound, but it also sacrifices durablility. If you plan on purchasing these cymbals please keep in mind that they are not made for overly loud-volume settings.

      14 K top hat with Z custom bottom

      By DrumGrooves

      from Ohio

      Comments about Zildjian K Hi-Hats:

      From this set I am using the top hat K cymbal only combined with a Z custom bottom cymbal. This combines a jazz rock fusion sound that is very colorful and has responsive tones. I would recommend the K cymbals to all.

      Amazing sound...

      By hydro12285

      from Gainesville, FL

      Comments about Zildjian K Hi-Hats:

      After quickly developing a love affair with K's when it came time to get rid of my ZBT's, I decided to buy these 14"'s as my hats. The sound is dark, warm, and clear. I find that I appreciate the sound more when someone else is playing my kit and I get to hear them in action. So many hats these days sound brash and metallic, but the K's are a real knockout. Beautiful, warm, colorful tone eminates from these cymbals. The bottom cymbal is very heavy and sounds ridiculous when you take some mallets to it...a nice pitch and plenty of overtones. The top is rather thin, so you get a dry, smoky stick attack that responds quickly. The "chick" is deep and solid, but not overpowering. You can get a decent amount of volume out of it, but can also get a beautiful, delicate sound when you need it. Not meant to be in an overly hard rock setting due to the thin top, but they can still be used for rock when you don't want your cymbals drowning out your guitarist. Besides, anyone who cracks cymbals on a regular basis needs to re-evaluate their technique. I play in a fairly heavy jam band with them and they sound great. Very colorful and expressive, with lots of full, rich overtones to keep your ears happy for some time to come. They also work wonders in the studio. Best $300 I ever spent.

      Very clean sounding hi-hats. Would definitely recommend to anyone in any style of music. I wanted more "chic", so I am returning these and purchasing 13" K Mastersound hi-hats. Other than that, these Zildjians are an excellent quality pair of hi-hats!

      Great Set of Hats

      By Mr.BigStuffEndorses...

      from Boston, MA

      Comments about Zildjian K Hi-Hats:

      The K hihats have a great "chick" when played with the left foot, and a crisp and very warm sound when played with the stick. These hats are VERY warm, so don't expect a very aggressive cut from them. I like the volume that I can get from the 14"s over 13"s, so that's something to think about. Overall, I very solid set of hats.
