  • This pair of Original 1980s K 13s” sound absolutely phenomenal.  They’re not harsh or brash - they do what 13s” should do, they crisp, articulate, have a fast response but are STILL warm.  

  • No need to go $460 deep on a pair of new Zildjian K 13” Hi Hats. 

  • Check out this pair of 1980s gems from the first few years that Zildjian brought back the K Series with the help of Tony Williams. 

  • If you want something classic and yet not the same old humdrum - this is a fantastic pair to get. 

  • These beauties are 35 years old and they have that Earlier styled hammering - coming out of the 1980s and early 1990s. 

  • Take a look at the pictures! Overall very clean - especially for vintage Earlier Ks. And being 13s” they offer a faster response and articulation than their larger brothers but this particular pair is still warm for 13s”. 

  • They sound amazing. 

  • The top cymbal weighs only 876 grams and the bottom cymbal weighs 1172 grams.  

  • The result is a pair of fast, crisp, slightly-dry, and articulate 13s” with a very quick response and solid CHICK.  Quite dynamic, they are very responsive at low volumes and are quite capable of loud too.

  • The 13” size lets them speak at a whisper while the 1182 gram bottom ensures a solid CHICK. 

  • The handiwork is much different on the Earlier Ks than today’s version. 

  • Perfect for any style of music - faster but still with a darker, warm crispness - and that’s not easy to find. 

  • No issues. Aged and mellowed well. Overall extremely clean sounding and looking for Earlier Ks.
