Norwell, MA: The Avedis Zildjian Company has launched two new HiHat boxsets featuring cymbals from the Company’s most popular A and K cymbal lines. Recognizing that HiHats are some of the most played cymbals on a drum set, the new “3 Hat Packs” are designed to give drummers a greater range of sonic options. Designed to promote mixing and matching of HiHat pairs, these two new “3 Hat Packs” ultimately deliver new sounds and “feels” for drummers.
The 14” “3 Hat Pack” (MSRP $969.00) features the legendary A Zildjian New Beat Hi-Hat Pair. In this standard pairing, a medium weight top cymbal on top of a heavy weight bottom cymbal provides a powerful balance of bright overtones. The addition of a 14” K Custom Dark Top Hi-Hat cymbal to the “3 Hat Pack” offers the darker K Zildjian colors. The 15” “3 Hat Pack” (MSRP $1114.00) features the 15” K Light HiHat Pair. In this standard light pairing, a medium thin weight top cymbal on top of a medium weight bottom cymbal provides a warm balance of dark overtones. The 15” A Zildjian New Beat Top provides brighter A Zildjian colors. When using all three cymbals in the pack in every possible combination, drummers are provided with six distinct set up options that range from a lighter dark blend to a bright and full bodied tonal center. The variations also impact stick definition, chick performance, and overall dynamic range.
Both packs are available in stores in August. For more information and videos, go to 3hatpack.
