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.
A Custom Series Features
- Selective: Concentrates on an exlusive range of sounds drawn from the A Zildjian palette.
- Distinctive: Radical new rotary hammering techniques, exclusive to Zildjian, and special thin weights create a sophisticated sound quality reminiscent of cymbals from the forties and fifties.
- Modern: Enables contemporary drummers to add classic A sounds to today's music.
- Unique: Every cymbal is individually cast and rolled from the secret Zildjian alloy, creating instruments that each have a distict voice and character.
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.
