  • Here’s the sound cymbal companies have been sweating for decades trying to imitate….and they’ve had valiant efforts. 

  • But none do this! 

  • This is the Real Deal! 

  • Thin Vintage Zildjian 14” Hihats.  They do it all, except death metal.  
  • This pair of Vintage 14s is particularly airy, light and complex, and splashy sounding. They have a subtle liveliness to them - like you went back in a time machine to 1962 and just picked these up new.  

  • Only 832 and 840 grams.  Both of these cymbals sport the 1960s Zildjian stamp.  

  • Both look to be Vintage Zildjian Hand Hammered and that no doubt contributes to the light and complex tone. 

  • The bottom has a fairly steep profile which no doubt contributes to the old school light complexity! 

  • Light, and whispy with a hint of liveliness on top, tight, focused, and MOTOWN crisp when closed, perfect RINGO SLOSH when opened. Sturdy Jazz-style CHUP when played with your foot.

  • These are TRUE LIGHT HATS.  Not just the weight - the TONE.  It’s buoyant and light and airy.  

  • K Light Hats play like Rock Hats next to these. 

  • No modern Hihats do this.  It’s the elephant in the room for cymbal companies.  

  • Vintage Paper Thin Zildjians have an inimitable tone that is instantly identifiable yet not duplicatable. 

  • No issues. Fantastic shape with a light half-century old patina that has befriended them. 

  • The famous tone that put Zildjian on the map.
