  • Damn!!! New, NEW Beats are $430! For the redesigned ones trying to imitate what these Vintage ones do effortlessly!

  • And this particular pair is from the FIRST FEW YEARS OF PRODUCTION and has a VERY THIN Top cymbal - only 813 grams. That’s  thin on New Beats! 

  • Have a listen! Don’t guess at what cymbals sound like! Buy with confidence here. 
  • CLASSIC pair of crisp, clean-sounding articulate, fairly dry slightly complex VINTAGE 1960s EARLY Zildjian New Beat 14” Hihats in amazing shape. 
  • And they’re wonderfully clean! Beautiful light golden hue. 
  • This pair has the perfect mix of light subtle complexity with a paper-y whispy tone but they still offer that famous New Beat CHICK! 

  • And they have a mellowed dryness to them. 
  • The most recorded Hihats in history.

  • THIN 813 Top Cymbal, and a heavier 1296 gram Bottom Cymbal. These 14s” espouse the time-honored New Beat philosophy of a thin top cymbal coupled with a heavier bottom cymbal to supply plenty of CHICK tone!

  • And that they do!! Crisp, tight, clean, and articulate sticking that is focused when closed, compliments of the last  5 decades. Whispy light and airy accents when opened.  But overall slightly dry. 
  • Great RINGO style slosh when opened fully.
  • These beauties are drier but also more complex sounding than the $430 new ones - they have aged and focused up beautifully but also have a much thinner top cymbal. 
  • 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. Fantastic - especially for being a half-century old. 

  • Real Deal EARLY New Beats from the very first years of production. 

  • Don’t spend more for less….
