  • 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 Vintage New Beats do naturally.

  • The most recorded cymbals in history, and with good reason. They just do!

  • And these are the harder to find massive FIFTEENS! 

  • FAMOUS Classic Hollow Logo -  very clean and crisp sounding. 

  • No need to go $470 on the modern ones. That’s ridiculous. And you’ll just be guessing at the tone. 

  • These you can actually hear! 

  • This particular pair of 15s harken from the golden era of classic rock - New Beats had only been around a decade and a half and drummers were using them everywhere.

  • Crisp and articulate 1143 and 1568 grams espouse the time-honored Thinner Top Heavy Bottom New Beat philosophy - with this pair being extremely crisp, focused and clean sounding. 

  • Famous responsive, cutting CHICK tone. Again this particular pair cuts extremely well with a very strong chick - even from this era.  Stronger than most. But they still remain responsive at lower volumes. 

  • 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” Hi Hats, these are the 40-year-old originals, they do it all.

  • Very clean with a light patina. No issues. A JOY to play.

  • Vintage Zildjian 15s” is always in style, and this pair is is very crisp.
