Fundamentally dark sound. Captivating musicality. The 14 K Custom Dark hi-hats sound beautifully articulate at all levels from the crisp accents on the side to the clear stick definition on the body. Although dark there is a bright musical resonance to these cymbals especially when playing around the bell area. Glassy and thin sounding when closed the 14 Dark K Custom hi-hats open up with a more narrow-pitched wash sound than typical hi-hats. Ideal for jazz funk R n B and more their versatility makes them one of the most popular choices in the Zildjian K Custom series.
