All i can say is these hi-hats really hold up. I had a zxt medium-thin crash paired with these hi-hats, and they've outlasted the crash for quite a while now. If you're looking for something durable and you're on a budget, I'd say these are your best bet.

Then buy as cheap as you can, because you're just gonna end up wishing you had more money to upgrade in the future. With that said I'm sure these hats are better than say the zbt hats, but however are nowhere near profesional quality.When these hats are played in the closed position using sticks you get unwanted pitch bends galore. When opening and closing them with your foot they actually sound pretty decent, but still not too great. When played slightly open they sound very average, and when played fully open they still sound very average.Another thing worth pointing out is since these cymbals have a brilliant finish they will tarnish and lose their luster rather quickly. So constant maintenance is required if you wanna keep em looking sharp. Over all these are by no means the worst hats money can buy, but I just cant imagine any serious drummer ever being satisfied with these over the long haul.

Comments about Zildjian ZXT Solid Hi-Hat Cymbal (Pair):

This cymbals are very thick and strong. They sound very good closed. And make a nice high pitched ting when they are open. They are good all around cymbals, for beginners, and experts. I have a chepaer drum set this enhances the sound of it tenth fold. I recommend it for anyone. Zildjian rocks!

          Hey, for the price you can not go wrong. They are heavy and probably will last a long time. OK, they might not be as clean a sound as my other hats, but do you think anyone will know the difference in a loud rock band? They do have a cutting sound which works for me.

            Comments about Zildjian ZXT Solid Hi-Hat Cymbal (Pair):

            I bought these for three reasons. I've played them before and thought they sounded very nice for lower end socks. I also have wanted an emergency spare set for a while, but can't justify buying another set of Quick Beats or Soultones (what I use, depending on the gig) just to sit in waiting. The 3rd reason was the "stupid deal" price, which really was the clincher!! Got 'em in 2 days, awesome job MF. I can't say how they'll hold up, but they seem sturdy enough. On a budget = get 'em!

                Comments about Zildjian ZXT Solid Hi-Hat Cymbal (Pair):

                These cymbals are good for beginners. They are better than the cymbals that come with the drumset, but dont really make a "chick" sound. I would suggest these cymbals if you want an upgrade from the cymbals that come with the drumset, but not if you are looking for great cymbals to have for a while.

                I use these hi hats at my drum lessons and I think they sound nice. They give a nice "chick" sound when you close them. When open they also have a really nice sound. I plan on either buying these or the rock hats from zxt.

                    These cymbals have an awesome, clear tone at almost any volume. A little bit clangy when played all the way open, but this mostly goes away after breaking the cymbals in. Also, the bell is my favorite part about these hats; it has a clean, powerful, high sound without any nasty overtones. These sound great for the wide variety of rock I play with my band!

                        Purchased these discounted 'stupid deal of the day'.
                        First, all new cymbals need a break-in period (one way is to use earplugs, use mallets to give the cymbal(s) a good workout for about 20 minutes - after several million vibrations, it will sound more as a 'unit'. These are medium, but the 14" as I have give a more heavy sound when played closed.
                        Partially opened, very crisp. Fully opened, the medium sound comes through, maybe a bit too 'pingy', but still a great pair of hats.

                          Got a great deal on this set on stupid deal of the day. Got them home and put then on my set and gave them a try. Unfortunately, I really didn't like the sound of the pair. Tightly Closed hits were fine with good feel. Wide open hits sounded ok but a little trashy and with some extended reverb that didn't sounds good. Slightly loose hits sounded really bad to me. More metallic and with strange undertone.

                          I switch back to my old Paiste lower hat with the new upper high hat and the sound was much better. Still not what I was hoping for from new symbol but better then they were before and the price was cheap - so going to stick with this until I can afford really good setup.

                          I Don't like Zildjian crashes, splashes or rides. But they make the best Hi-Hats. The ZXT is the best sounding Hi-Hat in this price range. It's not the best ever, but it's a VERY good Hi-Hat for the price you pay.
                          If you are worried about spending too much money, then wait until you have enough. Because the ZXT is worth the price over the ZBT and the ZHT

                          Comments about Zildjian ZXT Solid Hi-Hat Cymbal (Pair):

                          This ZXT hi-hat set has the ability to act as individual cymbals if the seperation is set right. Each cymbal has its own sound in various places of strike. I have been able to get three distinct sounds or a blend of those sounds in the open position off of each cymbal,not to mention the various sounds in the closed position. They are a great buy and I would buy them again.

                          For the price you can't beat them. For rock okay but not great for anything else.
