$389 OBO. Up for sale is a nice pair of Vintage 1950s Zildjian 15" Paper Thin Hi Hats with the engraved "Small Stamp" weighing in at 880 grams on top & 907 grams on bottom. This is a matched pair of vintage Late 50s small stamp PAPER THIN hi hats. Very good condition especially for being over 70 years old. They measure exactly 15" and both have 1/2" holes. These do have some slight variations on the edges as seen with paper thin hi hats but they sit together nicely when paired on a hi hat stand. Excellent thin dark wash with lots of dark overtones, and a wide chick sound.
Engraved "small stamp" logo, used 1957-1959, on both cymbals is 1 1/8" tall and does not have the 3 dots . These have very similar weight (unlike modern heavy bottom cymbals) which is common for this era of Zildjian.
Check out my other listings for many more vintage Zildjian cymbals from the 50s to present. We do have another pair of these hi hats, same era, same size but slightly heavier.
Photos were taken in direct and indirect sunlight to show lathing, color and finish details.
The video below is for demonstration purposes and is not of the exact pair of cymbals, but of the same era, model and very close weights of cymbal.
