Zildjian K Custom Hybrid Hi-Hats (13.25in)
Zildjian K Custom Hybrid Hi-Hats (13.25) Product Overview
Developed in conjunction with Akira Jimbo, the K Custom Hybrids combine an unlathed, brilliant finish on the inner half with the traditionally finished K Zildjian lathing on the outer half of the cymbal, resulting in two possible different sound dynamics, dependent on where the cymbal is played. The unlathed section helps to control the wash and sustain, ideal for recording and live situations.
The innovative "Hybrid Hammering" on the hi-hat results in reverse Mastersound grooves by hammering into the bottom of the cymbal from the opposite side. This results in increased surface area contact between the top and bottom cymbals, and a warmer chick and wash than normal Mastersound hammering. Akira specified the 13-1/4" size to combine the power of a 14" size and the control of a 13".
