Just acquired these hi hat cymbals. They don’t look like anything special. But they are sonor and stamped made in Germany. They have RYRKO etched in them. 14”, slight keyhole and some dings. Has anyone ever seen these and any idea of year and or value? Thank you.

It’s Tyrko, and you’re right that they’re nothing special. They were cheapies that came with kits in the 1960s/70s I believe. I’ve played them, and in my opinion they’re similar in sound to the lower quality Zyn’s that Premier provided with their drum sets, which I’ve also owned. I believe the alloy is nickel silver.
