  • Try as they may, the big companies have not been able to replicate the sound of these Vintage 15” Hi-hats. Don’t get me wrong, they have wonderful attempts and have made some nice cymbals along the journey, but they don’t do what these Early New Beats do naturally.

  • And for that “replica” sound they charge $460!  

  • But THIS is actually THE TONE.  Right here. Factory stamped! 
  • The most recorded cymbals in history, and with good reason. They just do!

  • Vintage Zildjian Early New Beats Hihats in terrific shape! 

  • And these are the harder to find massive FIFTEENS!   

  • These particular huge beauties harken from the EARLIER YEARS of New Beats - New Beats had only been around about 5 or 10 years and drummers were using them everywhere.

  • 1047 and 1374 grams espouse the time-honored Thin Top Heavy Bottom New Beat philosophy. 

  • Famous Responsive. Cutting. Fantastic CHICK tone. Again this particular pair is darker, more whispy and complex, and much more responsive than most from this era - and definitely more so than the modern ones.

  • And being the rare, larger 15s these beauties are darker and lower-pitched than the everyday 14s. Perfect for laying down massive grooves.

  • No need to spend more money on big box store “re-designed” Hihats, these are the 50 year-old Early originals, they do it all.

  • No issues. Dark golden patina that focuses them up beautifully and makes them studio friendly!  A JOY to play.

  • Vintage Zildjian 15s” is always in style, and this pair is one of the darker pairs you’ll find.
