Offered up for your immense delight is this beautiful pair of not-so-easy-to-find MASSIVE Vintage 1960s FACTORY STAMPED Zildjian 15" New Beat Hihats that are in EXCELLENT Condition. Check out the pictures! I am happy to report that there are

NO

nicks, cracks, dents or dings on these 15"s. They are in GREAT SHAPE with a wonderful patina that has befriended them and helps dry them out a pinch. 

The fascinating thing about these hihats is the weight and sound. These Early New Beats are a snapshot from the history of Zildjian hihats. This pair is the perfect balance between the paperthin early 50s/60s models and the modern and heavier New Beats that emerged in the 80s and exist today. New Beats today are pretty thick and fairly heavy.  The sound is a perfect cross section of Vintage Zildjian hihats.

The weights on these 50 year old Beauties are 1028 grams for the Top Cymbal (thinner than a modern 15" New Beat) and 1476 grams for the Bottom Cymbal.

What's great about these Vintage 15"s, is that they espouse the time honored Thinner Top/Heavy Bottom New Beat philosophy, however they are CONSIDERABLY more dynamic and musical than modern New Beats. The Top Cymbal gives these hats a smoother, more mellow, semi-dark New Beat vibe. But they're not paperthin either, so they STILL supply a nice, solid, focused Zildjian New Beat tone and they still project well. ESPECIALLY since they're 15"s. They have that freight-train-a-comin'-down-the-tracks. vibe.

Classic ORIGINAL 1960s New Beat 15" tone.

AND THIS PARTICULAR PAIR IS VERY DAK AND SMOOTH SOUNDING!! 

You can use these thinner 50 year old 15" New Beats on absolutely anything. Rock, classic rock, old school funk, more classic rock, soul, R&B, pop, classic rock, definitely blues, fusion, loops&samples, country, session work and ANYTIME you need a great, smoother, more musical freight-train-a-comin' Vintage Zildjian Early New Beat 15" FAT tone. 

And if you're a collector with a 60s or early 70s kit, mount these Original 15" Zildjians on your set and welcome the serenity that will descend upon you.

THESE ARE THE ORIGINALS!! And they're in EXCELLENT Condition!!!! AND THEY'RE DARK AND SMOOTH!! 

So do yourself a favor and grab these beautiful HUGE Vintage Zildjian 1960s Early New Beat 15" Hihats.

Use these Vintage Zildjians on your next gig or store these early "New Beats" in your closet and watch them appreciate, for they surely will.
