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

  • This pair is amazing for a studio. They are Hand Hammered giving them a maximum light, complexity - they really play like 1940s or 50s Zildjians. 

  • 778 and 793 grams - that is wonderfully thin! Like some of the THINNER 1960s hi hats you will 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 that costs $640 for an imitation. 

  • Hand hammered, wavy surface, ultra-thin weights.  Look at the pictures. Gorgeous. 

  • 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 golden patina.

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

  • Right here.
