    A. Zildjian 15" hi-hats (1086g/1426g)

    These relative heavyweights are a great-sounding pair of hats with a very strong chick. The stamp is a bit faded, but my best guess is that it's a 1960s stamp (other holics can correct me if they have better eyes). Below are a photo of the stamp and a quickly made video (but the sound quality is good). $260, including shipping.

    Well since you asked, I think that is a 70s stamp



    although that doesn't make any difference to how they sound. And they sound like a nice pair of New Beats.

    These sound great! What sort of cosmetic wear do these have? Flea bites, keyholes, etc.. Not that it matters too much with some vintage A's, but I'm curious.

    They look great. No flea bites, scratches, dents, or cracks (at least none I could notice without a microscope). Just a lovely patina. As you can see from the photo of the faded stamp, they've been well used. But that's a good thing, right?
