For your kind consideration is this this amazing pair of vintage Zildjian A hi-hat cymbals. These rarely seen thin hats from Zildjian's early golden years of production have their 2'nd stamp (1940-46), sometimes mistaken for their 1st stamp which is similar, and also known as the pre-trans stamp.  These sound phenomenal with a dark, musical, smoky sound very reminiscent of thin K Zildjian Istanbul Old Stamps of the period. We played and preferred these with the 602g cymbal on top, but they sound fabulous with either on top. As vintage Zildjian enthusiasts know, due to the early more hands on manufacturing process of the time, very few cymbals of this era had exact to the inch measurements, which adds to their sound and charm. The 596g cymbal measures 13.75", and due to the extreme thinness, has a few light edge bends which typify the era and weight (see photos and video). This does not effect the sound, integrity, or beauty of this rare cymbal. The 602g cymbal measures at 13 3/8".  There are no cracks or fleabites. 602/596g. Enjoy!
