  • Classic Vintage New Beat CRISP tone with a hint of complexity. The top cymbal is slightly thinner and this pair has a subtle light and lively tone that sounds right off a 1970s classic recording. 
  • Don’t go $430 deep on a stock photo guess of new New Beats when you can have the originals and hear them first.  
  • Here we have a pair of very crisp, clean-sounding, articulate with a pinch of liveliness, VINTAGE 1970s Zildjian New Beat 14” Hi Hats in amazing shape!

  • The most recorded hi hats in history. And you can hear them first so you can buy with confidence.

  • This pair has beautiful hammering on the underside too - looks a little bit like the 1960s models. Perhaps that’s why they’re a bit sweeter sounding.

  • 964 gram Top Cymbal, 1216 gram Bottom Cymbal.  These 14s” espouse the time-honored New Beat philosophy of a thin top cymbal coupled with a heavier bottom cymbal to supply plenty of CHICK tone!

  • Again, this particular pair offers a great CUT and projection with a percolating liveliness and light complexity. They’re not paper thin but they’re not heavy either.

  • Crisp, tight, clean, and articulate sticking that is focused - compliments of that 4-decade old patina. These beauties are drier and more tight and clean sounding than the $430 new ones - they have aged and focused up magnificently.

  • 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 from the 70s. Very clean for 40 years old. 

  • Don’t spend more for less….
