  • Here’s one of the TIGHTEST, DRIEST, MOST CRISP-sounding pair of Vintage New Beats you will find.  Open them for a papery-whispiness - compliments of the paper thin Top cymbal. 

  • And they’re in the RARE EARLY 13s” and they sound absolutely phenomenal. That, I promise. 

  • Everything. That’s what these do! 
  • You hardly ever see 13s” New Beats from the 1960s - these are literally from the very first few years of production! 

  • Paper Thin 680 Top Cymbal, 1078 gram Bottom Cymbal.  These 13s” espouse the tone-honored New Beat philosophy of a thin top cymbal coupled with a heavier bottom cymbal to supply plenty of CHICK tone. 

  • Being the elusive 13s”, these 55 year old Zildjians offer a quick, ultra crisp, fast response with a bit more DRY, cutting quickness to them. 

  • They play faster and cut extremely well without sacrificing tone. And that’s hard to find. 

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

  • And they’re THIN. 

  • Crisp, tight, clean, and articulate sticking that is focused. Very pronounced chick and articulation both with your hand and foot. 

  • Much drier and tighter than any modern Zildjians - but naturally so!  Mellowed over time and organic with a light airiness. 

  • Incredible for recording! Plenty of cutting ability for live situations. 

  • There’s a reason everyone wants Vintage New Beats!  They just do THE THING. And these 13s” excel at THE THING. 

  • No issues. The awesome patina that focuses them. 

  • REAL DEAL 55 year old New Beats from the first few years old production! Some of the nicest 13s you will find.  Guaranteed.
