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:

    If you are looking for a warm authentic vintage sound these are the hi hats to go with. Zildjian has been making cymbals forever and know what they are doing. You get what you pay for and wont be disappointed if this is the sound you are looking for. This is a real hands on product review from John @samash.com

    Great Sounding Hats

    By 

    from Canoga Park, CA

    About Me Professional Musician

    Comments about Zildjian Kerope 14" Hi-Hats:

    I'm more of a hard hitting Bonham type drummer, and I can bust just about every cymbol except the hats, except maybe the ride. But, I like to invest a little more in those cymbols, since I'm going to have them for a while. If I were in the market for a new set of hihats, these would be the ones I would get.

        Comments about Zildjian Kerope 14" Hi-Hats:

        Love the kerope series! Zildjian really knocked it out of the park with these. The have a great dark sound that isn't fatiguing to the ears at all. They're a little more washy than K's, but in a good way! In general really awesome hats, and with 2 years of break protection from Zildjian, you can't go wrong!

        A Classic Sound

        By 

        from Phoenix, AZ

        About Me Professional Musician

        Comments about Zildjian Kerope 14" Hi-Hats:

        Close your eyes and listen to these and I promise you will open them and look for those magic 3 words, Made. In. Istanbul. Let's be honest, modern hi hats sound like, well, modern hi hats. Meinl makes some good attempts with the Byzance series and their new vintage pure looks promising, but there is a reason Zildjians marked 'Made in Istanbul' still demand a premium.

        There is that roughly smooth sound that vintage Zildjian hats have that can't be mimic'd... until now.

              Comments about Zildjian Kerope 14" Hi-Hats:

              Man, these things are like playing a vintage cymbol that's been really taken care of. I know talking about music is kindof like dancing about a painting, so you've really just gotta play these with a kit. They're really easy to EQ with a kit, and cut through any mix without being annoying.

              Zildjian really knows how to make great cymbals. Warm dark sound, they look and sound like a vintage pair of hats. Good investment for a serious player.

                The Zildjian Kerope 14" Hi-Hats while closed have a sound which is velvety, the quality has a thick and robust presence. I noticed a very complex drive and while getting louder a warm and musical tone. This is a real, hands on product review from Rick @ Sam Ash Music, Phoenix, AZ.
