  • H ere’s one of the NICEST sounding pair of Vintage New Beats styled hihats you will find! 

  • A nd they’re in the 13s” and they sound absolutely phenomenal. That, I promise. Have a listen.

  • Crisp sounding like New Beats but with much more complexity and light, airy tone. 
  • Paper-thin Top with a nice and crisp medium to medium heavy bottom cymbal. 

  • As far as I can tell BOTH cymbals are from the 1950s! They’re like pre-New Beats.  

  • Hand Hammered. 

  • Paper Thin 658 Top Cymbal, 952 gram Bottom Cymbal. 

  • Perfect THIN New Beat styled weights. 

  • Being the 13s”, these 65-year-old Zildjians offer a quick, fast response, very responsive and complex tone with a bit more DRY, cutting quickness to them. 

  • They play faster and respond much more quickly than larger hihats. 

  • They sound like K 13s”….but Vintage and MUCH THINNER.  They’re DRY, compliments of that half-century-old patina. 

  • Crisp, tight, light, and airy sounding and articulate sticking that is focused. 

  • Very pronounced chick and articulation both with your hand and foot. 

  • Much drier and lighter than any modern Zildjians - but naturally so!  Mellowed over time and organic. 

  • Incredible for recording and low to medium volume settings. 

  • No issues. The golden patina that focuses them, they’ll continued to age gracefully. 

  • Amazing sounding Zildjians.
