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 2nd 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. 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 576g cymbal measures 13-7/8"and the 667g cymbal measures at 14-3/16. They sound incredible with either cymbal on top. Due to the extreme thinness and manufacturing process of this era, both have a waviness which typifies the era, weight, and age. This does not effect the sound, integrity, or beauty of these rare cymbal. There are no cracks, fleabites, or keyholes.  Enjoy!
