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.
