      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".

                YES!!!!

                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.

                Not bad

                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".

                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
