K/Z's are classic! They are a huge jump from the ZBT's.

The whole idea:

Complex dark-ish flavor with the top hat, bright, heavy cutting bottom hat for better projection.

Yeah, from what I've heard of them in stores, thats the general idea I've got. I was wondering, since it's a combination of two different hats, what ride would suit it? I'm obviously going to go to the store and check it out, but I was wondering if anyone had any suggestions before hand.

Try out a 20" K Custom Ride. That's one of the rides I have with my setup and IMO it compliments my k/z's. I'd definately try out a bunch of different rides to find the right one. Best of luck.

Congrats man! These are just like mine... I absolutely LOVE these hats... Incredible sound and versatility... I really think that I will never stop using these hats, It's the first pair of hi-hats I bought and probably the last. Also got mine for a bargain a long time ago...

Well i have had a good play of em for a couple of hours and my inital reaction was...uh, these don't sound too much different to my ZBT's, just with a few less of the bright, harsh overtones...but after playing them for a good hour, i found myself in love with them, and was able to get the different kinds of sounds that you just can't get in a ZBT. When closed tightly, they gave a dry and defined sound, but still had the cutting power. The hats sound amazing half-open and really would be useful in louder music. They seem to be pretty versatile, and i'm looking forward to playing them in my band next week.

The K/Z combo has been around for a long time. There's a reason for that. They're great hats!

Yeah the ZBT's are the cheapest alloy stamped out quickly. After playing A customs and others, and stepping down to a ZBT (in a store or on someones kit) :

The dull clankiness and limited dynamics of the ZBT will stick out like a sore thumb.
