SOLD This is a pair of 14” 1970’s Canadian Zildjian hi hats. This is a matched weight pair with weights of 1006/1029g. One cymbal has “HI HAT” stamped on the bottom. These cymbals sound nice with a more mellow tone than New Beats. They are in good shape with some minor stains and patina and some slight edge roughness that I have pictured. $135 shipped.

Hollow logo - doesn't that mean mean late-70's, maybe early 80's? Anyway, I wanted to note that recently I got a pair of 70's Canadian A hats, perhaps a little earlier than yours, and they were very closely matched, weight-wise, but were brilliant finish.

Nice cymbals!

I just picked up a pair of 14" Zildjians with matching weights around 900 grams. Not sure of the age, but they look old. And they sound wonderfully washy and warm. Very subdued "chick," though.

Matching 1000's are nice weights for vintage 15 Zildjians. I have a pair with 60's stamps and they are in the middle where jazz to rock is no problem.

Update: thanks Zenstat for making it clear the OPs hats are 14's.

These hats for sale are said to be 14s not 15s so we might need some clarification about potential typos. I know I'm considered fussy about details, but a pair of 14ers which are about 1000g are likely to sound and play differently from a pair of 15ers which are about 1000g.
