  • Here’s a pair of very smooth-sounding 25 year old EARLY Zildjian A Custom 13” Hihats that were on myriad recordings. I acquired these beauties from a producer who hand-picked them. And they do indeed sound great.

  • You can see the markings under the bell “13 GOOD #1 MAIN.”

  • 829 and 998 grams make them Thin to Medium Thin for A Customs. They have the classic, crisp A Custom Brilliant Finish shimmer combined with the brighter, faster 13” size.

  • I don’t think Zildjian even offers these 13s” anymore. The 14s” cost $450. I’m not even kidding.

  • Being the early A Customs, they have a glassy, smoother tone than the later versions, and they’ve mellowed beautifully over the last 25 years. 

  • They’re bright and clean but not harsh.  Very crisp sounding with fast action and great ability to cut.

  • Higher pitched than the standard 14s” so they penetrate quite well without having to reply on being heavy.

  • Great shape.  No issues. Terrific 2-decade patina built up.  Studio tested for years.
