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

  • THIN Vintage 1960s Zildjians Hi Hats.  

  • Take a listen and buy with confidence! 

  • Someone showed these beauties some love at the ol’ factory! They look to have that earlier hand hammering on the underside. 

  • 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 $580 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!

  • 959 992 grams. THIN but nothing ultra paper-thin. This pair has a bit more cut and bite than their paper-thin brethren. 

  • Light, and whispy with a lovely complexity! Tight, 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 a million recordings.

  • No issues at all. Light golden hue.  

  • EARLY 1960s Zildjian Hi Hats with an inimitable light complexity.
