I was using a set of ancient paiste hats with chunks missing so i was well overdue an upgrade.
Getting the K Lights was a serious, serious upgrade.
The top and bottom hats are different weights so you get a really beautiful dark sound but with it's own brightness on top. I play in a band where dynamics are key and the K lights can do it all. they sound gorgeous closed and played lightly but they can also hold their own when it gets loud on stage and offer a great slushy sound when half open.

I was originally looking at getting the K Lights in the 13" but I'm glad i went for the 14. They give that extra bit of volume that I need for playing in bands but can also be controlled when I'm rehearsing/practicing.

Superb hats.

Jaaa hmmm jaaa..
J. Funk, 12.06.2016
Diese vielsagende Überschrift resultiert aus meinem persönlichen Zwiespalt bezüglich dieser HiHat.
- Zuerst einmal, warum habe ich sie gekauft?
Als ich in 2010 mein Achlagzeug kaufte, vergaß ich bzgl Becken zu kalkulieren und hielt mich daher selbst eine Zeit lang mit Sabian XS20 Becken hin. Dann upgradete ich die XS20s auf Sabian Oberklasse auf, bis 2015, das Jahr in dem ich endlich die großen As und Ks zu meinen großen As und Ks machen konnte. Zildjian war für mich schon immer ikonisch, da aber der Einstieg auf Sabian fiel, blieb ich auch vorerst dort. Dann als die Chance kam, wechselte ich zur Marke meiner Träume, alles war erledigt, nur die HiHat fehlte. Die XS20 HiHat erhielt neben Keropes, K Constantinoples und K Customs einen Stammplatz über 1 1/2 Jahre und wurde immer nur wochenweise mal gegen eine Zildjian HiHat getauscht, da diese schnell wieder weg vom Set war.
Ich bim bzgl HiHats sehr audiophil und habe wirklich ALLES von Zildjian bereits unter den Sticks gehabt.
Nun fiel die Wahl auf die K Lights.

- Und wie sind 'se nun?
Die etwas leichteren Variante der K Series Hats hat einen deutlich weicheren Klang und Anschlag, sie sind bei weitem nicht so unangenehm durchdringend und laut, haben aber dennoch Schärfe und die charakteristische K-Dunkelheit. Der Foot-Sound fügt sich im Jazz schön ins Bild ein, der Open-Sound macht sich in Rock sehr gut. Die klangliche Vielfalt machen sie zur Universal-HiHat, weshalb ich sie gerne für Musical-Musik verwende, in denen genau so ein Spektrum gefordert wird.

- Gibt's auch Contras?
Definitiv!
Die HiHat ist durch ihre Leichtigkeit sehr schwer klar und definiert zu bekommen. Heißt, dass es akzentuierter Sound auf Edge kaum bis garnicht möglich ist, während er auf dem Becken selbst sehr leise ist. Weiterhin ist es mir unerklärlich, dass die HiHat einen so schlechten Rebound hat. Einfache Rolls oder schnellere Figuren mit einer Hand sind sehr schwer zu verwirklichen, weil die HiHat den Schlag gefühlt aufsaugt. Das ist schade und beinahe die Überlegung, für einige Situationen eine weitere HiHat zu kaufen, Wert.

Alles in allem sind die K Lights eine sehr gute Allroundlösung mit etwas leiserem und weicherem Ambitus als ihr schwerer Bruder.
Eine Kaufempfehlung für den Schlagzeuger, der alles will!

J'utilise ce charley dans un contexte de rock assez copieusement amplifié et dans ce domaine il s'en sort a merveille. Il est très polyvalent à mon sens, bien qu'en matière de cymbale tout est question de goût, très honnêtement je ne lui trouve pas vraiment de défaut. Il ravira probablement ceux, qui comme moi, ont peu être déjà trouver le son du regular k un poil trop heavy. Son très cristallin, belles harmoniques, assez complexes. Après déjà maintenant presque 25 ans de batterie et un certain nombre de charley au compteur (k custom dark, k regular, a new beat, etc..) celui ci est sans conteste celui qui, s'il ne devait en rester qu'un, demeurait.
