What We Think

Shimmering and crisp, Zildjian's K Custom Hybrid Hi-Hats offer the perfect balance of breathy sustain and tight stick definition. The combination of a medium-thin top and crimped, medium bottom results in an open but defined chick with short sustain, the perfect sound to provide a timekeeping anchor. As well, the hybrid lathing pattern on these hats serves to control the wash and sustain, resulting in controlled and projective stick articulation with a bright and medium timbre pitch. These hats are a must-have for any drummer doing session work, as they record exceptionally well. Give us a call today to find out more about these wonderful hats! 

Manufacturer's Description from Zildjian

Developed in conjunction with leading drum stylist Akira Jimbo, the Zildjian K Kustom Hybrid Hi-Hat Pair features an innovative brilliant/traditional surface that produces different tones depending on where the cymbal is played for a musical "darkness with brilliance" combination. The inner half features the unlathed, brilliant finish of the K Custom Ride, while the outer half features the traditionally finished K Zildjian lathing. The unlathed section helps control the wash and sustain, making it ideal for recording and live situations.

The innovative "Hybrid Hammering" on the hi-hat results in reverse Mastersound grooves by hammering into the bottom of the cymbal from the opposite side. This results in increased surface area contact between the top and bottom cymbals, and a warmer chick and wash than normal Mastersound hammering. Akira specified the 13-1/4" size to combine the power of a 14" size and the control of a 13".
