OVERVIEW

Renowned Mastersound design and Zildjian Ultimate Sheet Bronze combine in these amazing hi-hat cymbals!

ZHT Mastersound hi-hats give you bold, melodic sound with full-bodied presence.

For their ZHT series Zildjian chose Ultimate Sheet Bronze, an alloy with a higher tin content for enhanced low- and mid-frequencies. This extraordinarily musical metal is combined with ultra-modern manufacturing techniques and extensive hammering to create value-priced cymbals with sounds that are both modern and traditional.

Zildjian creates their Mastersound hi-hats using innovative hammering techniques on the outer rim of the bottom hi-hat cymbal, resulting in alternating raised and lowered contact points that facilitate rapid air release. This creates a noticeably faster and cleaner "chick" sound, without sacrificing body in the overall sound of the cymbals.

The Sweet Spot in Value

By Richard Golladay

from Virginia

Comments about Zildjian ZHT Mastersound Hi-Hats Cymbal Pair:

I have 40+ years experience and have used A's, K's, K Customs, Paiste 602's & 2002's and Sabian AAX's. I needed a good pair of reasonably priced, but not cheap junk, hats for a rehearsal kit. I checked out a pair of 14" ZHT Mastersounds and bought them because they sounded far better than I expected. I've had them two years now and like them a lot. They definately out perform their price range and I have since bought the 14" standard hats and like them a lot also. I have one kit that is all K's and K Customs. Two other kits I am using the same set-up of 20" K Custom Dark Ride, 16", 17" & 18" ZHT Fast Crashes and the 14" ZHT Hats. Incredible bang for the buck. The other ZHT's I have tried I have not cared much for but the ones listed above, to me are the "sweet spot".

Comments about Zildjian ZHT Mastersound Hi-Hats Cymbal Pair:

I'm a sort-of beginner percussionist (8th grade.) I bought these hats myself last Christmas and they are gonna be my only hats for a while. I have a Pearl Rhythm Traveler and it doesn't overpower anything (except the wimpy bass drum.) They have a very glassy and sharp closed sound, but a little sketchy open sound (only good if you can get them to where they barely sizzle.) They're extremely durable, and a great buy for a beginner or a professional. I may not be the best 13 year old musician, but i play guitar (better) and concert percussion, and these are awesome. GET THEM.

Zildjian ZHT Mastersound Hats

By C4103

from Hartford, CT

Comments about Zildjian ZHT Mastersound Hi-Hats Cymbal Pair:

I've owned these hats for about a half a year now. I've played quite a lot of different cymbals, and these are still my favorite. The Mastersound ripple is great and really gives them a lot of sustain and edge. If you keep the bottom hat slightly tilted, the foot pedal sound is very unique because you can hear each individual ripple from the bottom hat hitting the top. The only hats I would consider over these would be the A Custom Mastersounds or a set of Paistes. However, we all know how expensive either of those choices would be. If you're trying to spread your budget out across your drums, then these are an excellent compromise. I have them paired with a Zildjian & CIE Vintage 20'' Ride, a 20'' Zildjian Scimitar Ride, a 17'' Zildjian Fast Crash, a vintage Zildjian 20'' Crash / Ride and a 4 inch Zildjian Splash.

      A nice upgrade from ZBT's

      Comments about Zildjian ZHT Mastersound Hi-Hats Cymbal Pair:

      I bought the ZBT pack last year. These hats sound much much better than the ZBT hats. I've never played any super expensive hats, so I don't know how it compares to that, but for the purpose of playing in my bedroom, these will suffice for a long time. Great value. I definitely recommend if you're looking to upgrade from your stock hats, or ZBT hats.

      Comments about Zildjian ZHT Mastersound Hi-Hats Cymbal Pair:

      The Zildgian ZHT Mastersound Hi-Hats are really good for the price, though they are not the best. I like the sound closed, opening the hats is another story. Again, for the price, these are hard to beat. I'd recommend saving up for something more if you want "the best".

      Comments about Zildjian ZHT Mastersound Hi-Hats Cymbal Pair:

      I have had these hats for over a year now and they are still in perfect condition. I love them. The master sound ripple really separates them from the rest of the "budget" cymbals. The whole ZHT line is amazing. 14" ZHT Mastersound Hi Hats17" ZHT Fast Crash20" ZHT Crash Ride

      Awesome Hats

      By zildjian lover

      from NJ

      Comments about Zildjian ZHT Mastersound Hi-Hats Cymbal Pair:

      I bought these to replace the no name hats that came with my set. I have a 14in. A custom crash and wanted those hats but the price was way over my budget. I decided to step down to sheet metal and I found these. These hats are amazing they sound absolutely great closed and but also pretty good open. I play mostly closed but if you play open but the regular hats, not the mastersound. They are the same price it just depends on your style of play. I would recommend these to anyone who doesn't want to spend a fortune on new hats.

            ZHT vs. Customs

            By HartBeat

            from Statesboro, Georgia

            Comments about Zildjian ZHT Mastersound Hi-Hats Cymbal Pair:

            About two days after selling my Ludwig Set with my Zildjian Customs I was Scratching my head saying to myself, "What was I thinking!" Well, I wanted a new drumset and thought I would just skimp on cymbals for awhile and get the ZHT kit. I was shocked with the Hi-Hats! They look good, feel good and play Great. They follow me everywhere when I play any style....

            Comments about Zildjian ZHT Mastersound Hi-Hats Cymbal Pair:

            The ZHT Mastersound's are pretty good hats if you're on a budget. They're not as clean sounding as I was hoping, but they have good wash for rock and stuff. They are priced as if they weren't that great, but the price is deceiving. I say, if you can't afford higher end cymbals, these are the way to go. I would compare them to Sabian XS20's.

            These Hi-Hats are unbelievable! I play in a pop-punk band and will be using these to record. They have a very bright poppy sound, perfect for recording. Hopefully they hold up well!

            These hats are amazing! I purchased the A series Mastersound to compare after getting these thinking they would sound better but these ZHT's are definitely better sounding in my opinion. Super "chick" and stick sound and very versatile. Buy these now!

            Comments about Zildjian ZHT Mastersound Hi-Hats Cymbal Pair:

            I got back from the store an hour ago. These are only my second pair of hi-hats, and I'm thoroughly satisfied. As a musician on a tight budget, I know how it is to not have a lot of money around. For 150 dollars, I got cymbals that sound to the semi-trained ear just as good if not better than the a-custom version. Very good value with a great "chick" and "splash" sound.

            I bought these because I joined a new band and my zbts kinda sucked. I wanted to splurge and go with zildjian k's but these sound pretty awesome and they cost way less. The logo starting to kinda chip and its only been 2 months but they still sound great. I think the chick is the best part of these hats.
