The Kerope series combines Zildjian's rich history of tradition with the modern cymbal making techniques of their master craftsmen to create one of the most authentic vintage K recreations to date. Each cymbal is hand-crafted using a 14-step process that utilizes Zildjian's 390 plus years of innovation. These cymbals have a warm, dark sound that is extremely rich and complex. Their unique design gives them an already played-in feel while the proprietary patina finishing process gives them the sonic and aesthetic characteristics of a vintage cymbal. The weight of each cymbal is hand-written under the bell.

        Comments about Zildjian Kerope 14" Hi-Hats:

        Exactly what you would expect from Zildjian- the best. With a rich, clear sound these hi-hats will cut through and be heard at the back of the club. Great for a variety of styles of music. Jazz, rock, country, etc. Weight of each cymbal written under bell, so you can keep your kit consistent. Build quality will stand up after plenty of use.

                    Zildjian has really hit a homerun with the Kerope cymbal line and specifically with these hi hats! These have a vintage flavor with great, dark stick definition. These may favor some jazz or symphonic players but, I would personally even try these at any rock, pop gig or studio gig. Fans of A's and K's are going to love the new Kerope line!

                      I really enjoyed the tone from this set of hi hats. It seems to me more focued than other brands hence records very well. It doe have a darker ring which I like. I am a staff reviewer at Sam Ash Music.

                              The Zildjian Kerope 14" Hi-Hats are awesome hats with a real dark sound. I play a lot of jazz myself and they are great. They have a solid chick sound and have a nice warm washy open sound. They sound even better than regular K customs.

                                These hats sit in a nice rich zone of not too bright and not too dark. Enough clarity to cut, but not so focused that it's overwhelming. The dynamic range allows for both subtlety and emphasis with ease. Zildjian's old-meets-new methods give these hats a killer look.
