Welcome to Zildjian Sound Lab Videos. In this installment we talk about and play the 13" A Zildjian Pocket Hats with Paul Francis. He plays the cymbal and talks about the large hammering clusters and brilliant finish.

Here's a transcript of the video:

Paul Francis: Welcome to the Zildjian Sound Lab Video. Today we're going to talk about a set of 13" Pocket HiHats. We had made this as an exclusive set of hihats as part of our Inspiration Pack last year. One of the great things about this set of hihats is that it has a thin top with an extra heavy bottom.

Now we've borrowed a lot of things from the past to make these hihats. As you can see the hammer marks are very, very large. These are the hammer marks that we used in the Remix series when that came out in 1999. The cymbals are unlathed and they're polished to a very high brilliant finish. Now the great thing about the thin top with the extra heavy bottom is you get a great "CHICK" sound, but with the thinner top you get a lot of color. So it's not just a high pitched brash set of hihats, it's very colorful and very quick, and its great for hip-hop and R&B music.

So I welcome you to look at this set of 13" Pocket HiHats at Zildjian.com or at your local Zildjian dealer.
