Here's a Killer pair of 60 year old THIN Vintage Zildjians!

WHILE THEY ARE FACTORY STAMPED "MEDIUM", THERE IS NOTHING MEDIUM ABOUT THEM!! THEY ARE THIN!!!

WHISPY, RESPONSIVE and DRY and QUICK!!

HONESTLY, why the hell spend $280, yes $280 on a pair of big box store, regular Zildjian 12" Special Recording Hihats??

THAT WON'T sound like THESE 60 Year Old THIN GEMS!! These are actually from when Thelonious Monk was a new artist!

Posted for your immense pleasure is this KILLER sounding pair of RARE 1950s THIN Vintage Zildjian 12" factory stamped "MEDIUM" Hihats that are in FANTASTIC Condition. Check out the pictures!

Incredibly there are

NO

nicks, cracks, dents, or dings on these beauties. They're in GREAT SHAPE with a lovely patina that has befriended them.  The factory stamp "MEDIUM" has faded but is still visible.

And it ain't easy to find a pair of 6 decade old THIN Zildjian Hihats in this kind of shape. The Thin Zildjians that did survive the Great Cymbal Massacre of the late 1970s, were hunted down and slaughtered mercilessly during the Hair Metal Saturnalia of the late 1980s. How this pair of 12"s survived the decimation, I can only imagine. They must have belonged to a sax player.

And dig the lathing....Classic Vintage Zildjian 50s. 

Weighing in at a SVELTE 552 grams for the top cymbal and 597 grams for the bottom cymbal, these Vintage Zildjians play like CLASSIC Old School THIN to PAPERTHIN Zildjians.

Semi-dark Classic Vintage Zildjian sound. They're extremely responsive at lower volume levels (compliments of the thin weights and smaller size) and when you open up on them a bit, you get that great Classic Zildjian A Count Basie/Duke Ellington/Blue Note vibe.

Beautiful.

And being TWELVES, these Zildjians have a quicker response and overall higher pitch. Very responsive, fast and crisp and STILL warm!

Amazing for RECORDING and lower volume settings.

Swing, jazz, blues, big band, barrel-house, jump blues, boogie woogie, soul, bar room brawls, folk and sessions....that's what these Thin Vintage Zildjians excel at.

And it ain't easy to find over half-century old THIN Zildjian Hihats without nicks, and cracks, and dings. Hold onto to these babies because they will definitely appreciate in value!

If you want a Vintage tone, then go to the source. These Hihats are THE SOURCE.

$280 for non-Vintage regular, boring, everyone-can-get Zildjians?!!

Do yourself a favor and grab these ULTRA RARE Factory Stamped, Excellent Condition THIN Vintage Zildjian 12" MEDIUM Hihats.
