  •  Here's a pair of ultra-thin over half-century-old Vintage Zildjians that sound like they were just plucked off an Oscar Peterson Record.

  • 627 and 725 grams - that is really damn thin! Like some of the THINNEST 1960s hihats you will ever find.  

  •  And that’s a beautiful thing when you need a light whispy papery vintage tone - none of this modern stuff masquerading as "vintage" or "vintage reissue" nonsense.

  • Hand hammered, wavy surface, ultra-thin weights. 

  • These 60s hats play like 1940s Trans Stamps. That’s the vibe. 

  • Light Papery whispy, very responsive, wonderfully complex tone with a subtle lively glow that percolates when opened. Dry attack. Very mellow chill - compliments of the last 60 years that have been quite good to them.

  • Beautiful CHUP tone when played with your foot. Golden glow when opened. Very light and subtle.

  • They sound unbelievable under a mic and are fantastic for low to medium volume settings. 

  • Amazing with brushes!  

  • No modern company makes this sound. This is THE SOUND.

  • It's a joy to play cymbals that are 60 years old. No issues, great shape, gorgeous patina.

  • The sound of jazz, soul, Motown, and early rock and rock.

  • Right here.

  • Some of the papery thinnest ones you’ll ever find.
