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

  • Paper THIN Vintage EARLY 1960s Zildjians Hi Hats.

  • And this pair truly IS Hand Hammered. And they have one of the darkest patinas you will find! 

  • They have a wispy, wonderfully dry tone - some of the driest you will find.  

  • 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, but Zildjian ain’t hand-hammering these days - far from it. 

  • But they keep charging $550 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!

  • 854 and 876 grams. Thin to Paper THIN. Slight Complex but still smooth! 

  • Light and wispy with a lovely complexity! Tight, VERY dry, focused, and MOTOWN crisp when closed, perfect RINGO SLOSH when opened. Sturdy Jazz-style CHUP when played with your foot.

  • These are the hats that launched 1000000 recordings.

  • No issues at all. Amazing deep patina from living 60 years.  Sound incredible. 

  • EARLY 1960s Hand Hammered Zildjian Hi Hats!  

  • THE SOUND!  And some of the best ones I have.
