Zildjian K/Z Special HiHat Pair 13"
Zildjian K/Z hi hats are some of the best.  They are very common, but I still feel like the K/Z combo produces a certain unique characteristic that I am always pleasantly surprised to hear.  I have never owned a pair because I always had a set of K mastersounds which suit my needs.  However, if I had to go back and get new hi hats, these would definitely be a contender.  I have never met a drummer familar with K/Z's who didn't consider them to be at the top.

The mix of the K top and Z bottom produces qualities of both, but it still sounds mostly like a K (which is probably a good thing).  The stick definition is definitely dark and smokey like a K, though the chick sounds significantly different to me.  It is louder, and a bit brighter then the K's I have played.  When playing quickly or busily on the top, the sound atriculates exceptionally well and it feels very responsive.  I have only ever played the 13'' hats, but I am sure the 14''s are just as good if not better.  The wash on these is also exceptional, again retaining mostly K characteristics but sounding a bit brighter and more cutting.  The cymbals that these remind me of most are the A mastersounds, though these are definitely a superior cymbal pair.

There is nothing negative I can say about these cymbals.  They are amazingly versatile, durable, and good looking.  Even though they are bought together, it is still sort of cool to have a mixed hi hat pair like so many great players did in the past (Steve Gadd, for instance).  Many cymbals are matched, so this is a drawback buying 2 single hi hats presents.  Unless you have the time and resources to test dozens of combinations, these cymbals give you the versatility and uniqueness of a mixed pair of cymbals without the hassle of making them sound right.  These hats are perfect for almost any kind of music, and aren't that expensive considering the value.

Zildjian K/Z Special HiHat Pair 13"
How long have you use it?
15 years

Have you tried many other models before buying it?
It was the gift of my 18 years ... I remember having a crush on the K / Z and a Paiste Signature Sound Edge. Zildjian finally won!

What is the particular feature you like best and least?
+: Accuracy! At all levels charley this is the most accurate that I was given to play, both in the foot with chopsticks. The sound is sharp but not too much with the top K which gives an excellent fit with Z. He was thinking, mix 2 types of cymbal sounds in total contrast, ranges and styles! The openings are very powerful and semi-open game is devastating but remaining perfectly controlled. I use a lot this charley studio and every time its engineers are very happy for the accuracy, sound and volume. I play Rock / Pop / Funk, it is excellent for that! He has beacoup under the hood and I'm sure it is suitable for metal. Jazz probably a little less as can be a little too steep?
-: Can be slightly powerful in config when oat bar above. In this case I prefer to use a Paiste 602 14 70's and Zildjian Special Recording in 12 for all small groups. I also find the top K a little hard under the baton but it is a matter of habit, and just what is a Charley it really takes to tame out the best.

How would you rate the quality / price?
Rather expensive as many Charley, but questioned its strength and there's no picture!

With experience, you do again this choice?
Yes, the studio I think it's really a reference!

Zildjian K/Z Special HiHat Pair 13"
I use that Charley bought new a year ago. There was so much about myself and after having rented for a few concerts and festivals .... try it now!
I have been offered in OCCAZ to € 150 but in bad shape ...
Its Dimmension 13 "allows it to go anywhere (studio, stage) and have a high pitch that passes frequencies above the guitars, without being disagreeable.
The game is very nice, easy and quick rebound. The look of the Z which is the bottom cymbal is beautiful version of Brilliant. The K is on top finisher is mate, what a little odd, but the interest is elsewhere ...
The sound! THE sound! When closed strong, just closed or open / close it sounds extremely well. Half open position you can feel the limits of its size: too keen to raise the saucz, its harmonics are poorer in this position.
Similarly, the light weight of 13 K "requires some getting used to maintain a constant and regular opening half. The slightest change in opening means for miles!
If you find OCCAZ correct in less than € 180 go for it! It is more versatile than the 14 ". I have played both a charley as pleasant: in the Meinl Byzance 13".
