With its outer edge design of individual contact points on the bottom cymbal to assist supply a clear and defined “chick effect” every time, the extra amount of “sizzle” that may be given off by Mastersound hi-hats truly adds a special dimension to the music you’re playing. The design also adds extra high end “sparkle” to overtones when the cymbals are played partially open.
The Zildjian ZHT Series
For their most advanced and musical Sheet Bronze cymbals, Zildjian began with the heart of the cymbal–the bronze alloy. By increasing the percentage of tin in the sheet alloy from 8% to 12%, they got significantly more balanced frequency response, lush overtones and a very attractive appearance. Ultra-brand new crafting techniques, and extensive hammering have created a more musical sound than in the past found in a Zildjian Sheet Bronze cymbal. ZHT is the only Zildjian Sheet Bronze series in a traditional finish, and features popular Zildjian Cast Bronze models.

Zildjian Bronze Technology
Zildjian Sheet Bronze Cymbals begin as pre-formed disks cut from metal with uniform thickness. Precision hammering and shaping pummels cymbal discs, loosening the alloy’s molecular structure and freeing up its distinctive tone. Sheet Bronze cymbals have a very fast response with a quick decay, in conjunction with excellent durability and a consistent sound within each and every respective model. Affordably priced, Sheet Bronze cymbals make a great choice for beginners and pros alike.
