  • Damn!!! New, NEW Beats are $430!! 

  • For the redesigned ones trying to imitate what these Vintage ones do effortlessly and have done for half a century. 

  • And this particular pair has a wonderfully THIN Top Cymbal and is from the FIRST FEW YEARS OF PRODUCTION. 

  • CLASSIC pair of clean-sounding articulate, VINTAGE 1960s EARLY Zildjian New Beat 14” Hihats in fantastic shape!

  • The most recorded Hihats in history. 

  • And as far as 1960s New Beats go, this pair is very articulate but still has a beautiful light complexity - compliments of that thinner Top Cymbal. Terrific stick articulation whether playing soft or loud.  

  • 833 Top Cymbal, and a 1238 gram Bottom Cymbal.  These 14s” espouse the tone-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 - compliments of that 5 -decade old patina. These beauties are drier and more tight and clean sounding than the $430 new ones - and this pair has aged and focused up beautifully.

  • Incredible for recording! Plenty of cutting ability for live situations - especially with this pair. 

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

  • No issues. Great half a century old patina focuses them perfectly. 

  • Real Deal EARLY New Beats from the 1960s with a fantastic articulation and a pinch of that famous Zildjian liveliness. 

  • Don’t spend more for less….
