As a drummer, your hi-hat tone is one of your most easily identifiable sonic signatures. If your tone is a little lacklustre, then perhaps you should consider a tone-lift. The Zildjian Zildjian Avedis 14″ Hi-Hats would make an excellent addition to your drum rack.

Zildjian Avedis 14″ Hi-Hats

The Zildjian Avedis 14″ Hi-Hats have a traditional finish and a solid Chick sound.

They are the grandfather of the famous Zildjian New Beats; the most recorded Hi-hats in the world. If you are looking for that great and crisp New Beat tone, but want more volume, then this is the perfect pair of hi-hats for you.

Zildjian Avedis 14″ Hi-Hats are loud. Very loud. This is because of their extra heavy weight. There will be little doubt as to what cymbals you have when you play on your Avedis 14″ Hi-Hats.

The extra heavy weight of the cymbals adds not only volume, it also adds sustain for days. No more will your cymbals die off when you don’t want them to.

Lathed vs Punched Cymbals

The Zildjian Avedis 14″ Hi-Hats have been lathed from the finest materials.

Entry level cymbals are often stamped out of a long sheet of metal. This means that they can be cheaply mass manufactured. While stamped (or punched) cymbals are easy and cheap to make, they do not offer the best of tones.

The mechanical lathe has in the past few decades, undergone some tremendous improvements. These improvements have led to automated cymbal lathing machines. These machines are able to produce cymbals with a richer tone.

The process is slower, but the overall effect makes that worthwhile. Lathed cymbals can range from mid-range to top of the line cymbals.

So, to sum it all of this up; if you’re looking for a pair of hi-hats with great sustain, unmistakable tone and extra volume, then look no further than the Zildjian Avedis 14″ Hi-Hats.
