Zildjian A Custom Mastersound Hi-Hat Cymbals

When only the best will do, turn to the bright, clear, clean, and crisp sound of the expertly crafted Zildjian A Custom Mastersound Hi-Hats.
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.

"Warm and beautifal, but almost too bright"
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.

The quality is superb, a standard to zildjian. it has a very bright sound to it, almost too bright, but really great.

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.
