Comments about Zildjian K Light Hi-Hat Pair Cymbal:

I bought the 14" K "Light" hats for acoustic jazz trio and quartet work. They work VERY well. Easy to control dynamics. Nice closed and open stick color with a smooth splash and "chick" sound. Also work well with brushes. It is difficult to play these hats too loud. Which is their advantage and potential disadvantage. When I play with larger groups or amplification they just don't have the volume or weight. For those gigs I go back to my Zildjian K Mastersounds. The Zildjian K "Light" hats are perfect for those intimate acoustic gigs, which is why I bought them and keep them in my cymbal bag.

    Comments about Zildjian K Light Hi-Hat Pair Cymbal:

    I have been playing for 40 years this year, and I bought these last year. I have owned Paiste Signature medium hats, Sabian (different pro models) and Zildjian (several sets of New Beats, Mastersounds,and Quick Beats) and these have it all. Not too loud, not too bright, a tad mellow, and just so warm and rich sounding. Nice sizzle and chick. Try these out. You may just fall in love!

    Best Hi-Hats I've Ever Heard

    Comments about Zildjian K Light Hi-Hat Pair Cymbal:

    Spent 2 hours in a drum shop last week, testing ever hi hat they had. The Z light hi hats were so far and away better than anything I played there. Wow! I will own them some day. Trust me it's worth it to have the best. WIll be the only pair you will ever own (or want) if you take care of them.

    They?re Zildjian K, what can you expect

    By M.A.T.A. 78

    from Puerto Rico

    Comments about Zildjian K Light Hi-Hat Pair Cymbal:

    Here?s a tip for beginners? drummer: You can always get a good drum set with a low budget. Even if the wood is not maple or birch, you can always make it sound good with a decent change of drum heads. That won?t cost you a fortune. But when we talk about cymbals, boy you can?t avoid expend some serious bucks. The rule is different here, you get low budget cymbals and you get a bad (irremediable) quality sound. If you?re going to invest on a drum set, star with the cymbals, as crazy as its sounds. They?re the expensivest part of the drum set, and they have to be choosing very carefully. With all the K line, you can buy anything with closed eyes. All you have to do is pick the sound that most define your style and your taste. No need to worry for quality here. Oh yes, this hi hats are simple the bests. There?s no word to describe its sounds. And yes they?re expensive, but they?re Zildjian K, what can you expect.

    Adding to the Praises

    By Chungiemunchin

    from Baltimore, MD

    Comments about Zildjian K Light Hi-Hat Pair Cymbal:

    I got the 16 inchers and love them. The additional playing space sixteen inches affords increases one'sgroove - abilities and the sound when played half open is amazing. When closed loosely they play incredibly as in those funk tunes where the hi hat is as much a character as the snare is for those syncopated rhythms. The only down side is that they are pricey which throws their value quotient off just a little HOWEVER, they're still, in my opinion, worth the expense.

    Best Hats Ever.

    By Anonymous

    from Undisclosed

    Comments about Zildjian K Light Hi-Hat Pair Cymbal:

    Simply put, these are the best hi-hats I have ever played (ie. many mastersound variations, k custom dark, k custom hybrids, a custom variations...). Sure the 14" pair will set you back $400, but they are well worth it. Everything you could want in a pair of hats are right here: the stick defintion, the crispness, the wash, and ah yes perfection; again whatever you want in hi-hats are right here. Don't look any farther. You've found the best addition to your set, ever!

    wow

    By thirtydirtybirds

    Comments about Zildjian K Light Hi-Hat Pair Cymbal:

    These are amazing hats! A buddy of mine has the k custom dark/z pair and he heard these the other day and was very jealous. Sweet glorious chick and sticking, everything I could ever want in a high hat. Best part is that the light bottom is a regular top, so if you order a k regular bottom, you will have a set of regular k's and a set of k lights!

    Comments about Zildjian K Light Hi-Hat Pair Cymbal:

    I have heard of these cymbals and seen them. I have also heard them. They sound great! They have a thin top and a medium-thin bottom. They are expensive but they are worth it.

    My search for the perfect hats might be over!

    By LudwigVan66

    from Tulsa

    Comments about Zildjian K Light Hi-Hat Pair Cymbal:

    So far, these are the best hats I've owned or played. My first ones were Sabian B8s, which just plain stink, second were Paiste 2002 Soundedge, which were great, but a bit to bright for my tastes, then an old pair of Zildjian New Beats, which were just too heavy, then a pair of K's which were ok, but a little too clangy. These K-Lights are perfect! Nice tone, not to bright, a slightly soft feel, good chick, and great for all kinds of music. They even sound good with brushes. Overall, I think these are one of the best new products from Zildjian in years.
