Here's an AMAZING SOUNDING pair of PAPERTHIN Vintage Zildjians! CLASSIC TONE!!!

 SUPER THIN, LIGHT, A PINCH DRY AND WHISPY!!  $570!! That is how much a new pair of Zildjian K Constantinople Hihats will set you back. And that's the Guaranteed Lowest Price too. Now of course if you're on a shoestring budget you can get the regular K Hihats for $485

That's awesome if you like your cymbals to be 1050 grams and 1380 grams....

How about those new-fangled AVEDIS SERIES hihats...for $480?

But what if you actually like your Zildjians TO BE THIN!!!!!

How about some "vintage vibe" Keropes or modern vintage homage Avedis Series Hihats?

For $540???

WHY? WHY? WHY? 

These are the ORIGINALS from the 50s!!  And they're DAMN THIN!!  NO ONE CAPTURES THIS TONE!! 

Posted for your immense pleasure is this KILLER sounding pair of Vintage 1950s Zildjian THIN 14" Hihats that are in Excellent Condition! Check out the pictures! There are 

NO cracks or dents on these beauties! They're in GREAT SHAPE, with a GREAT 60 year old patina that has befriended them. And dig the lathing....Classic Vintage 1950s Zildjian.

Again, this specific pair LOOKS exactly like those AVEDIS Hihats, but these are THE REAL ONES! The actual Avedis As. 

THE TONE THAT MADE ZILDJIAN FAMOUS 60 YEARS AGO! 

It's pretty damn hard to find paperthing Zildjians that are in great shape these days. Most succumbed at the end of a 2B stick in the 1987 Hair Metal Bacchanalia. 

Somehow this pair survived...

Weighing in at a luscious 797 grams for the top cymbal and 806 grams for the Bottom cymbal, these Vintage Zildjians play like CLASSIC Old School PAPERTHIN Zildjians.

They play like what the AVEDIS are trying to capture. BUT THEY'RE A HELL OF A LOT THINNER AND SOFTER AND ACTUALLY HAND HAMMERED!! 

DARK, Paper-y, whispy, airy, DRY, ORGANIC Classic Vintage Zildjian sound. They're extremely responsive at lower volume levels (compliments of the thinner weights) and when you open up on them a bit, you get that great Classic Zildjian A Beatles Ringo style wash. Semi-dark. Whispy Slosh. Beautiful. 

Swing, jazz, rock-a-billy, blues, big band, early R&B, barrel-house, jump blues, trio work, Stax recordings, boogie woogie, soul, bar room brawls, folk and The Beatles...that's what these Thin Vintage Zildjians excel at. Just don't rock them hard because they will break if slammed upon...and no one wants that.

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

$570 for non-Vintage Zildjians?!! Why the hell spend MORE MONEY on "Vintage vibe", "homage" this and that "re-issue"???

Ummmmmmm...why not just get the Originals? With the actual Original TONE!

 

SO do yourself a favor and grab these 797 and 806 gram, beautifully aged,  Vintage 1950s Zildjian 14" PAPERTHIN Hihats.
