A Zildjian 14" Mastersound HiHats (Pair)
If you've ever wondered why Zildjian's super popular A Zildjian cymbals strike a chord with so many different types of drummers, all you have to do is listen to what they say. They being both the cymbals and the drummers, of course. Drummers will tell you they love the classic A Zildjian sound and the wash of spectrum of tonal colors. But it's the cymbals themselves that ultimately lend their distinct "voice"Ν to your music and creativity. So listen up, and hear everything Mastersound Hi-Hats have to say.
Mastersound refers to the rippled wave design on the outer edge of the bottom cymbal. It's this hammered edging that helps air escape as you close the hats, creating a speedier response and better definition when stepping and accenting. The long sustain slowly fades out to hold and lengthen the effect. Mastersound Hi-Hats also deliver a radically fast, clean "chick"Ν sound in the bright, natural and full-bodied voice of the famed A Zildjians, the world's best-selling cymbal series.
Using centuries-old crafting techniques passed down from one Zildjian cymbal-making generation to the next, Mastersound Hi-Hats are cast one at a time from the Zildjian family's highly secretive bronze alloy formula of 80% copper, 20% tin and some traces of silver. All have a traditional finish with precision machine hammering marks and wide groove lathing patterns. Buy the top and bottom cymbals individually or as a pair.
