The Best Hihats for Recording.

The Zildjian K Constantinople hihats are perfect for recording most genres. They are smooth and not too loud and sit well in the mix. After all the years of wasting money an cymbals for the studio this is wear I ended up. 1. K Constantinople hihats 2. Crashes- Zildjian K Dark thins (sizes 16" and 17" Sit well in the mix and get out of the way quickly) 3. 20" K heavy ride. Nice definition and clear bell. Underrated and great for recording.

Best hi-hats I've ever heard

I was looking to upgrade my hi-hats on my kit, because I've been, frankly, playing fairly cheap ones for too long. I've always been a fan of Zildjian products and I was potentially interested in getting some K-Customs to replace my old ones, until I heard these. They sounded great on the Zildjian videos I watched, as well as some other reviews, so I decided to take the plunge. The price point is pretty high, but this was exactly the hi-hat sound I was looking for. The Constantinople series has a rather dark and warm quality to it, but it also had a layer of brightness that the K-Dark's didn't have. It's kind of a best of both worlds between the Dark's and K-Custom/A-Custom sound. I found the hi-hats could cut through the sound of my kit really well. Now, the manufacturer lists Jazz as the best style, but I play metal, Black Metal to be precise and when it comes to a hi-hat tone that complements the music I am performing, I think these are the best I've ever heard. The response to blasting patterns and sections simply sounds beautiful and I can't get enough of it! A word of caution when it comes to these cymbals though. They're meticulously made, but they are a bit of a thinner metal, so if you find you're a heavy hitter behind the kit in the realms of metal then you might want to steer clear of these cymbals. You won't want to break something this expensive so soon.
