That is how much a new pair of Zildjian 13" K/Z Combo Hihats will set you back....

And I doubt they will sound as great as THE ORIGINALS RIGHT HERE!!!!

AND THEY SURE AS WELL WON'T BE BRILLIANT FINISH!! 

These Brilliant ones have always been much harder to find than the Traditional ones.  

 

This particular pair sounds KILLIN'!! Well balanced and crisp with a pinch of BRILLIANT SHIMMER! And they're a VERY EARLY PAIR TOO, IN INCREDIBLE SHAPE!! 

AND FROM THE EIGHTIES BABY!! THE ORIGINAL K/Zs!! The ORIGINAL DAVE WECKL VIBE TOO-Chick Corea Electric Band! 

Remember how the K/Zs sounded when they first debuted? VERY crisp! But NOT OVERLY BRIGHT AND HARSH! 

Well, I'm happy to say, that is THIS PAIR! CRISP, SEMI-DARK, SHIMMER. TIGHT. CUTTING. 

I am trying to provide a beacon of hope for beleaguered ebayers upon whom the dark curtain of zbt pro-packs has descended.

And what better way to provide reprieve than to offer up this lovely pair of Original 1980s Early Brillian Finish 13" K/Z Combo Hihats that are stupendous Condition!! Check out the pictures! Remarkably there are 

NO 

nicks, cracks, dents, or dings, on these 35 year old beauties. Just a lovely , light patina that has befriended them.  

Overall all this pair is DAMN CLEAN! 

Zildjian describes these hihats as:

"K HiHat top with Z Dyno Beat HiHat bottom. Dry, musical stick sound. Bright, sharply defined "chick." 13" highly recommended."

Now include the bonus, shimmer of a Brilliant K! 

And dig that 1980s Zildjian K TOP too!!  Check out the HAMMERING! That ain't a modern Zildjian K - it's nothing like the modern big box store ones. 

These K/Z Combo hihats are ingenious. The heavy, unlathed Original Hex Z Dyno Beat Bottom provides a monstrous CHICK. And the thinner, darker, more mellow 80s  Brilliant K Top provides a warmer tone that makes a great counterpart to the bright, heavy Z. 

 

The result is a pair of semi-dark, cutting hihats that are wonderfully versatile. They project extremely well and still maintain the CRISP tone of 13s".. 

The weights are a THIN 778 grams for the K Hihat Top (which is pretty thin), and 1342 grams for the Hex Pattern Z Dyno Beat Bottom.

VERY CRISP. NOT HARSH, still project a nice 80s K warmth. Articulate. Amazing CHICK tone. They still breathe at lower/medium volumes. Darker sounding than the modern ones. Overall semi-DRY. Exceptionally aged and played in for a mellower tone. All with that 80s K Brilliance! 

THAT is these 1980s Original K/Zs! 

Perfect CHICK for jazz and blues, killer cut for funk, fusion, pop and rock, R&B, gospel, session work, great semi-dark tone for country and reggae and KILLER for LIVE situations. These K/Zs are a boon to any cymbal arsenal. 

$370 for the newer, brighter, harsher sounding ones????? 

That's ridiculous! 

THESE are the ORIGINALS!! And they sound way better than the newer models! GUARANTEED! A really nice pair!

And they're the RARE BRILLIANT ones! 

WHY NOT SAVE MONEY and get a better tone!! 

So do yourself a favor and grab these wonderfully versatile SEMI-DRY, exceptionally warm and crisp, semi-dark 1980s Early Zildjian 13" Brilliant K/Z Combo Hihats.

And hang onto them. They're in AMAZING Shape!!
