I just got a pair of 1970s 14" Kashian hi-hats with a Pearl FG kit. B20, and I'm knocked out by how they sound! I'd put them up against old Zildjian hats any day. Really, they're that good!

Yeah, UFIP made them for Slingerland and branded them Kashian. UFIP used these pseudo-Arabic names to cash in on the Turkish cymbal market in order to compete with Zildjian.

Kashian does sound a lot better than UFIP which is a terrible name for a cymbal maker.
I can live with the name UFIP but what’s baffling is the term “Ear Created Cymbals” inked on top. It just sounds silly

Wow, I missed those.

I use a pair myself and I also love them. Yours are in considerably better shape than mine, especially that stamp, it looks really fresh. Very nice...
