  • Here’s a sound that’s ever-present in our minds:

  • THIN Vintage 1960s Zildjians Hihats. They work on anything (except heavy metal) and record beautifully.  

  • For whatever reason cymbal companies have not been able to capture the tone of these half-century-old original Zildjians….although they keep trying to.

  • And keep charging $680 for their attempts.

  • Fortunately, no one needs to try to “re-create” a damn thing! This pair of 1960s Thin 14s” just IS! Just create!  

  • Don’t stare at a big box store photo - have a listen to these exact hihats! 

  • A Thin 845 and 930 grams. Great weights because they have enough weight to be a bit more focused and dry and penetrating but still quite thin. 

  • Light, and whispy with a hint of 1960s Summer of Love liveliness on top, tight, focused, and MOTOWN crisp when closed, perfect RINGO SLOSH when opened. Sturdy Jazz-style CHUP when played with your foot.

  • Whispy complexity that sings in jazz and still offers a great chick tone. 

  • These are the hats that launched 1,000,000 recordings in all different genres too. 

  • No issues at all. Light golden hue. Smooth looking. Smooth sounding.
