  • 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 too. 

  • 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 New Beats, they still have no problem cutting and they’ve aged quite well so they’re a bit dry. 

  • Basically dry and complex 14s”.  

  • VINTAGE 1970s Zildjian New Beat 14” Hi Hats in fantastic shape!  This particular pair looks and sounds to have one foot in the 1960s - that’s what the hammering looks like, but they have the 70s stamp. 

  • Definitely 1960s or Early 1970s sounding 

  • The most recorded Hi Hats in history.

  • Very thin 796 gram Top Cymbal with a 1316 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 tone with articulate sticking that is focused - compliments of that 4-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 4 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 1970s.  Articulate but with a light liveliness. 

  • Don’t spend more for less….
