  • No need to go over $400 deep on a pair of new NEW Beats that are trying to imitate what these Vintage ones do effortlessly! 

  • And there’s no need to guess and what your new hihats will sound like. Have a listen! 

  • This particular pair has a THIN TOP Cymbal - giving them a Light, airy complexity when opened. But as New Beats, they still have no problem cutting. They also have a tight, dry sound when closed and even when opened. 

  • The patina mellows out the wash - this is a great pair for a studio. 

  • VINTAGE Hollow Logo 1970s Zildjian New Beat 14” Hihats in fantastic shape!  This particular pair actually has one foot in the 1960s - that’s what the hammering looks like, but they have the 70s stamp. But damn, they sure look Hand Hammered like the early 60s. 

  • The most recorded Hihats in history.

  • Wonderfully THIN 854 Top Cymbal over a 1226 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 golden patina. These beauties are more lively and breathy than the $410 new ones and they have a great played-in vintage-aged tone. These beauties have aged 4 decades magnificently. Father Time has done them well. 

  • Overall a bit drier than most. Still a bit complex.  

  • 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 that enviable LIGHTNESS and airy complexity. 

  • Don’t spend more for less….
