For your listening and viewing pleasure is this magnificent pair of 1959 Zildjian K Istanbul hand hammered Turkish Intermediate Stamp hi-hats in great condition. They are perfect medium-light weights for jazz, funck, fusion, latin, and anything else we've thrown at it.  The bottom hat still retains its signature, as well as a "14" medium" black ink stamp.  No cracks, no bends, no warping, no nicks.  The top hat's hole looks great, the bottom hat's hole is slightly out of round. These beauties have acquired a well earned patina over the years which has subtly quelled overtones into a luscious sonic perfection.  Like many of these old hand made Ks, they did not always match hats with exact same sizes, which in affect prevents air-lock when going for a clean chick.  The top hat measures at 13&15/16" & the bottom hat measures 13&13/16".  Not all K's were created equal, and these are a pair of the good ones.  They are an extremely musical matched pair that sound great with either hat on top. Ready for the finest of studios, or stages.

Top: 720g
Bottom: 836g
