Product Description

A Custom Mastersounds feature the same crisp, rich and colorful sounds associated with the A Custom range, but featuring a bolder, clearer "chick" sound and full-bodied overall sound.

A Custom cymbals deliver a sophisticated expression of classic Zildjian A Series sounds. They feature thinner weights and radically innovative hammering.

Zildjian Hi Hats -- The heart of your set-up.

The Hi-Hat is a timekeeping necessity for all drummers. Because the Hi Hat and the Ride both play a part in keeping time, the relationship between them is very important. They should be selected together, and they should complement each other.

What makes a great Hi Hat

The bottom cymbal should be relatively heavier than the top cymbal. This will ensure a good, clean "chick" sound. It is important that the volume of your Hi Hats balance with your snare and bass drums.

Played by:

- Mike Mangini - Dream Theater
- Gary Novak - Alanis Morissette
- Abe Cunningham - Deftones
- Rob Bourdon - Linkin Park
- Marvin McQuitty - Fred Hammond and Radical For Christ
- Thierry Arpino - Jean-Luc Ponty
- Raul Pineda

Customer Reviews
4.5 out of 5 (37 ratings) Rate and Review This Product
"Warm and beautifal, but almost too bright"
Sound: The quality is superb, a standard to zildjian. it has a very bright sound to it, almost too bright, but really great. Feature: theyre hihats, plain and simple Quality: Zildjian always has superior quality. Value: They perform well and have a great reputation. Travis Barker uses them! The Wow Factor: I think this cymbol really stands out on my set. It has a fine metallic lust that my other cymbols don't. Overall: I've had a few sets of hihats, but this is my fav. They have a character that is very expressive and warm about them.
Style of Music: Punk/Alternative

"The Holy Grail of Hi-Hats!!"
Sound: Over the last 25 years I've tried several brands and types of hats and have never been happy with the sound. Thanks to Zildjian's web site and these reviews I was able to find and hear the Master Sound hats. After 6 months of using them almost daily, I'm still blown away by their sound. Clean, crisp, bright, and can play jazz or metal with equal presence. I can't say enough about their sound!! "The Holy Grail of Hi Hats" Feature: The flanged bottom is the key to great volume when the hat is closed. It allows the stick sound to project and keep a great tone. Also I find that when I'm using my ride and just keeping time with my hat it enhances the sound of the ride like I've never been able to achieve with other hats. Quality: Zildjian quality speaks for itself!! I clean them once a week before gigs with "Groove Juice" cymbal cleaner and 6 months of jamming has yet to produce a crack or even a permanent stick mark. And that is using "A-Head" 2B sticks. Value: No more expensive than an a good set of quality hats. Manufacturer Support: Never needed it The Wow Factor: As with all the "A Custom" series these hats have a great finish and look great under the lights. Overall: Short of Fire, Theft, of Nuclear Holocaust, these will be the last type of hats I will purchase.
Style of Music: Rock

1. zZounds offers the industry‘s most musician-friendly payment plans

zZounds offers a variety of Play as You Pay installment plans that allow you to get the gear you want today. While our competitors might offer house credit cards that require you to fill out an application and pass a credit check, our payment plans are easy to get, simple to use, and, best of all, accrue zero interest. Unlike those house credit cards that can leave you vulnerable to exorbitant interest charges once the promotional period ends, we never have and never will charge interest when you take advantage of one of the zZounds Play as You Pay plans.
