Dry yet bright and articulate. The K Custom Special 13 hi-hats feature the legendary K Custom sound remastered for the modern musical styles of today. Although dry they feature plenty of bright tone with a sweet musical resonance that complements the groove. The dynamics are expressive with great stick definition on the body and fierce cutting accents on the edge. The chick sound is crisp and metallic with a precise and focused sound. With a raw and earthy tone they sound great in music like funk where the choppy accents really want to be heard. Overall they are outstanding and have a beautiful sound in a wide range of situations.
