  • These are the real deal Vintage 1970s 13” New Beats and they have that famous Early Neil Peart vibe!  And the 13s from this era are hard to find!   

  • From the first 15 years of New Beats with a very Thin Top Cymbal.  
  • $400. 

  • That is how much a new pair of Zildjian 13" New Beats will set you back - for regular ass big box store new New Beats. 

  • Forget that nonsense. THIS VINTAGE PAIR is the Original 13s”. And they have a THIN Top too. 

  • As many of you may know the 13" New Beats was the perennial favorite of NEIL PEART FOR DECADES! That's EXACTLY what Peart used on all those famous RUSH recordings of the 1970s and 1980s.  One of my favorite drummers of all time.  

  • And this pair of Vintage 1970s 13s” is from that hallowed time. 

  • Weighing in at a Thin 712 grams for the Top Cymbal and 988 grams for the Bottom Cymbal, these Zildjian 13s" exhibit that Classic Thin Top/Heavy Bottom New Beat Philosophy. They possess all the bright, clean, cutting tones that catapulted Zildjian's Flagship New Beat Series to stardom over half-a-century ago.

  • However being 13s", they are tighter, higher-pitched, faster and more CRISP than the standard 14s". The CHICK is Solid and you can get cutting accents when you open these Zildjians.

  • Again, this particular pair has a great 1970s tone that is so familiar to the ear! And they’re more responsive than most. 

  • 45 years mellowed with a great articulation. 

  • Great condition.  No issues. Clean with a light, golden patina. 

  • It’s a joy to play the Real Deal Vintage 13s” from the CLASSIC GOLDEN ERA OF PEART.
