There is a small amount of micro-scratches on the inside of the cymbals, as shown in the photos.
"K Zildjian Hi Hats embody that immediately recognizable sound of a Zildjian K. These hi hats are incredibly versatile in all sizes, dark and low-pitched. They deliver a deep, solid "chick" sound, with a quick response at all dynamic levels". One of the photos is the 1984 Zildjian Catalog.
Photos were taken in direct and indirect sunlight to show color, hammering and finish of these vintage cymbals.
The hand hammering on these IAK 13" hi hats is very well done; they have a very nice wash, and excellent chick. These cymbals are a nice well taken care of pair of 13" IAK hi hats. These are getting harder to find in this condition; they are a great cymbal choice for live and studio applications.
