OVERVIEW

Step up to Zildjian!

Planet Z is Zildjian's introductory line into their huge array of cymbals. Designed to meet the needs and budgets of developing drummers, they're forged from a durable copper- and zinc-based alloy. They're shaped and lathed into bright, exciting-sounding instruments.

They're clean and crisp when closed, washy and aggressive when open. Choose 13" for tighter, more focused sound, or the 14" set for more volume and cutting power.

A very nice pair of high-hats. I have noticed that they ring if you close them too tight, but other than that they produce a high quality tone great for just practicing or playing live. After a year or so they do get tarnished pretty bad. I recommend that any starting out drummer or an advanced drummer to check these out. They are cheap and they are definatly Zildjian Quality.

These were my first hi-hats I ever owned. My biggest problem with them was that they bent very easily. This could be because I had these in my first month or so, being a drummer, and I kinda beat the crap out of them, but there's no denying that Sabian B8s are stronger. They didn't bend at all, unlike these. The other big problem I had with these was that they didn't have a really crisp closed sound, something the B8s also had that these didn't. The Planet Z's had a sloppy closed sound.You get what you pay for with these cymbals, and I'd suggest to spend a little more on the Sabian B8's. They're stronger and sounds better. If you can throw down the cash, though, Hi-Hats are one of the more important cymbals in your arsenal, so I'd say get better than a beginner set, but Sabian B8 > Planet Z

they're pretty good

By iTz CLoWN TiMe

from Matawan, New Jersey

See all my reviews

Well, these hats are holding up pretty good so far on my set and I've had them for about a year or so. They give a nice sound, but nothing to go crazy about. No dents, only marks on mine, but cymbal cleaner would definately take them off and make them look brand new. I would say if your low on budget, definately buy these because they are cheap and worth the price.

Sucks, but good for starting drummer

By Anonymous

from Undisclosed

If you don't have much money, you might want to get these hi hats, but they suck. You might as well save and get zbt hi hat or better. They sound like tin foil.

By One Drop

If you like the sound of trash can lids then these hi hats are for you. I have NEVER heard a pair of hi hats ring. RING! A hoolow clanking ring. No chick sound whatsoever. If you want to know what these sound like, get some metal trash can lids and duct tape the edges together and then hit them with your drumsticks. Voila, you would have just replicated the sounds of these hi hats.

terrible

By Anonymous

from Undisclosed

I used these Hi-hats a couple times when I forgot to bring mine to my bassist's house. They are terrible! their sound is trashy, they are way tinny, and they sound like they're made of aluminum. I wouldn't take these if someone gave them to me.

so horrible

By John J Meyers V

from Thornton, CO

See all my reviews

These have to be the worst cymbals ever. At least save up for some zbt's. I was on ZBT's for many years until i made the move to A and Z customs. A student of mine got these and they are horrible. Stay away from this cymbal line. Buy some ZBT's if you are just starting out, and their sound will fit your needs for a long enough time. Zildjian is a great company, and they should never have made a cymbal line lower than the ZBT's.

Not worth your money

By ToryLelandKirgiss

from Undisclosed

See all my reviews

For the kids, sure. Other than that, don't waste your money. There's nothing special about cymbals that won't last that are made from sheet metal. If you're an active musician, save your money to purchase cymbals made from cast metal and that will last for years. Planet Z, ZBT, ZHT, and ZXT are not worth the money.

They are O.K.

By PearlOSX123

from CT

I have had this hi-hat set for about 1 year now and I have cracked it in 2 places. I have to say I am really thinking about an upgrade because they get a little tint of rust color because of aging and don't provide the right sizzle when played just a little bit open. But they came with one of my sets that is why I got them, and I have to say they are more beginner hi-hats.

GREAT buy

By T-Rizzle-_nMcY

These hats are a great deal. I previously owned the Sabian B8 hats, which were a good deal, too, but these were a HUGE upgrade. I'm a kid, so I was just looking for a cheap pair of hi-hats, but when I got them, I was really surprised at the clean sound they had. If you're on a budget, but need a good pair of hats, GET THESE HI-HATS!

It's okay

By benwilbury

from California

I own a pair of these hats and they are great for beginners. One of the problems I have with these are that they age dreadfully. The now sound like crap. They bent and rusted. I would not recommend these hats to anyone over the beginner level. I just relieved myself of them and bought A Custom Master Sound hats. That is the way to go.

Good and Cheap

By The Customer

I have had these hats for a little of 3 years now, I love them.They havn't cracked or dented. they lost thier shine after a shor amount of time, but looks don't count when people listen right?These hats get good sound closed or open, great for almost anything. And to top it all of, they only cost like $70 a pair! At a price like that who could pass them up?

Great set for te price

By gQq3HYquU

from Undisclosed

I recently bought these and after using them for a week I love them. The trashy sound is just what I want for my set and these hi-hats give it. Defiantly worth the money. One downside is the finish gets finger printed easy but thats cosmetic. All in all great set I love them.

My HiHat...

By Anonymous

from Undisclosed

I think these cymbals are very good for beginners because of the low cost and average function. These do however age fast if you touch it with your hands due to the oils. My one complaint is the it does not 'buzz' when open slightly (that might just be me though). IF YOU ARE A BEGINNER THESE ARE GREAT.

planet Z hi hats

By Anonymous

I have been playing for about eight months and there not bad to start with. Once you get past the basics it would be best to go up a level maybe ZBT or ZHT.

great hats!!!

By Anonymous

from Undisclosed

I really like these hats just for the fact that they are so trashy sounding. I love it :) I have had these things for about a half a year now and they still sound awesome. They will dent, ding, get old and scratched but any cymbals will. I have two sets of hats on my set and these are the ones I use the most (13") very nice great buy

I bought this hi-hat in a pack with a Zildjian planet Z crash, the crash craked within a month or 2, but i still have this hi hat, it has a lil dent, no cracks, sounds ok. Good for a beginner. Great for the price.
