  • Call the Smithsonian because these Cymbals should be there! They represent the Golden Era of American Cymbal making! Hand Hammered. Hand Crafted, and forged when a new form of music called Jazz had migrated up North and was exploding in New York City.

  • Ultra THIN Hand Hammered 15s” from the time of Glenn Miller! Literally made within the first few decades Zildjian went from confectionary to American cymbal smiths.

  • And these are some of the THINNEST 1940s Trans Stamp 15s” I have ever seen.

  • Only 828 and 834 grams!  

  • They're Hand Hammered all the way out to the edge - beautiful wavy surface.  

  • No modern company makes anything like these. Although they’ll tell you they do for $680. 

  • No need to bother with the “re-issues,” “vintage homage,” “throwback light Hihats” and all that.

  • Just get the originals!

  • Ultra Papery, whispy, super dark, warm and breathy with a distinctive natural dryness. 

  • They sound like they were pulled right from the Cotton Club. 

  • Hand Hammered and absolutely stunning. 

  • These Zildjians are to be celebrated - for their tone, but also because of what they represent - a piece of American musical and business history.

  • It’s a joy playing 80-year-old cymbals! You can’t re-issue a life lived. 

  • No issues. Very clean. Light use.  Remarkable that they survived the 80s.
