Product Description
The Zildjian 14" K Custom Session HiHats are a unique pairing, modeled after Steve Gadd's personal hihats. The hihats feature a slightly undersized (13 15/16"), medium weight top cymbal and a medium-thin bottom cymbal. A crucial aspect of Steve's playing style, the hihats also have an exceptionally controlled foot feel, capable of producing a full range of dynamic sounds using just the foot. Ideal for any playing or recording situation.

    5Extremely good hi-hats for most musicial applications
    By Mike Tarrani
    Of all of the hi-hat models Zildjian offers this ranks up there with the most versatile. The only two other multi-purpose pairs I like more are the Zildjian A Series 14-Inch Armand Hi-Hat Cymbals Pair and the A Zildjian 14" CIE Vintage Hi Hat Cymbals.

    Still, you cannot go wrong with these hats. They have a strange design based on an old pair of Istanbul K. Zildjian hats Steve Gadd used to own. The top is heavier and slightly smaller than the bottom (the top is 13-15/16" and the bottom exactly 14"). This configuration gives the hats a surprisingly responsive feel, and I like the sound - especially with the top hat loose in the clutch.

    Unlike the ride cymbals in the K. Custom Session series, which sound great out front, but terrible behind the kit, these hats are great sounding to both the drummer and audience. And they can project if needed, or will give subtle notes if played softly. This quality makes a pair perfect for just about any music genre or playing style. They also pair nicely with other cymbals from not only Zildjian (both A and K series), but other brands too.

    Mine get used quite often, which is high praise since I have six different pairs of hi-hats from which to choose.

    First of all this cymbals are sounds great!,every musician who heard that type of cymbals really like it.

    Second,as a drummer who play drums for an almost 20 years i can say that K cymbals has never sound as good as other Zildjian K's they produced over the years and i guess that all the drummes who like Steve's sounds will be more than happy to be like him :)

    Great job again it worth the money..!!

    Beuatiful and most of it you will like it as much as i do ;)

    sincerely yours,
