  •  If you own a studio or record a lot, get these! They’re focused and crisp and fairly dry - they possess all of what is great about Vintage Zildjian New Beats. And this pair has a thin top too! 
  • No need to go $430 deep on a pair of new NEW Beats that are trying to imitate what these Vintage ones do effortlessly! 

  • And you’ll be guessing at the tone of that big box store stock photo.  

  • But not here chez Hazelshould! 

  • LISTEN to these beauties! This particular pair has a VERY THIN TOP for New Beats - giving them a pinch of Light, airy complexity when opened. But as you can see and hear, this pair is crisp and DRY compliments of that 50 year old patina.  They have a dry attack with a light, airiness. 

  • Amazing under the mic. 

  • VINTAGE 1960s Zildjian Early New Beat 14” HiHats in fantastic shape!  

  • The most recorded Hi Hats in history.

  • Very Thin 774 gram Top Cymbal with a 1392 gram Bottom Cymbal.  These 14s” espouse the tone-honored New Beat philosophy of a thin top cymbal coupled with a medium-heavy bottom cymbal to supply plenty of CHICK tone!

  • And that they do!! Light complexity, great crisp and dry tone with articulate sticking that is focused - compliments of that 5 decade old patina. These beauties are more lively and breathy than the $430 new ones and they have a great played-in vintage-aged tone. They have aged 5 decades magnificently. Father Time has done them well. 

  • Dried out magnificently. 

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

  • There’s a reason everyone wants Vintage New Beats!  They just do the thing. 

  • No issues. Real Deal New Beats with a great patina from the Golden Age of Rock and Roll and Jazz. 

  •  Articulate but with a light liveliness. 

  • Don’t spend more for less….
