A good sizzle sound but not as loud or powerful as I hoped but they still sound great. The 14" Z Custom Mastersounds had a louder, more pronounced and clear cutting "chick" sound.
I have been playing on Z-Dyno beat hats for years. I switched because I wanted a more clean crisp sound. Well I got it with these! The action is outstanding and they sound great. Although I gave up heavy and crunchy, I got a pure players set of hi hats! These hats will make you step your game up! Listen for the new sound on the new Zach Caruso album Might Be The Rain!
These hats are without a doubt the most controllable hats I have ever played. Dynamics are superb and the feel is superior to any others that I have played over my life.
