  • Here’s a hard-to-find pair of Zildjians with a story behind them - a story of two Zildjian brothers.

  • As many of you may know, one of my favorite all-time drummers, Neil Peart, famously used a Vintage 22” Zildjian that sported the  “Made in Canada” stamp. That’s one reason he was comfortable moving to Sabian.

  • And these THIN Zildjian New Beats harken from those 1970s Canadian Zildjian years.

  • These are not your typical 1970s Zildjians, they have much more of a complex shimmer to them.

  • And the TOP cymbal is VERY thin for 70s Zildjians. ONLY 722 grams. That’s VERY thin for this era.

  • And the bottom is thin too - 1156 grams.

  • Also, the hammering and lathing are much different than the typical 70s cymbals - definitely have all the hallmarks of a Canadian Made Zildjian, or shall we say Pre-Sabian SABIAN.

  • The result is a pair of absolutely gorgeous sounding, THIN and incredibly responsive, DARK sounding New Beats that have delicate complexity to them!

  • These are some of the THINNEST and nicest sounding, responsive New Beats you will find. And some of the darkest too. That I guaranteed.

  • Absolutely amazing for recording. Incredible for low to medium loud volumes.

  • They work for any style of music.  Some of the nicest most versatile hi-hats you will find!

  • No issues.  Great shape.  Beautiful 40-year-old patina. A snapshot of Zildjian history.
