VINTAGE EXCELLENT Zildjian K Istanbul New Stamp 14" Hi-Hat Cymbals
- Vintage Cymbal. 1960-1967era.
- This is a stunning set of K Istanbul Hi-Hats in excellent condition. They are fairly even weights making the cymbals interchangable if desirable. Both cymbals feature appropriate coloration and very little signs of play. The bottom cymbal's hole is slightly irregular, as is common with K Istanbul cymbals. This is not a defect and is a natural mark of these instruments.
- This beautiful K Istanbul was hand picked at the old Gretsch Brooklyn New York factory by Phil Grant for the prominent Jazz drummer, vintage collector, and Cincinnati local, Ron Enyard, who has been the cymbals one and only owner. Ron can be found in Rob Cook's "The Gretsch Drum Book" on page 129, and sports an impressive resume of playing with artist such as Woody Shaw, Herb Ellis, Charlie Rouse, Al Kiger, Gordon Brisker, Kenny Poole, and Josh Breakstone.
- This cymbal is part of a collection of 6 K Istanbul Hi-Hat Cymbals, some of which have been played frequently, and some of which have not been played but a few times and are by definition "NEW OLD STOCK". Each cymbal was balanced and matched with an appropriate top at the Gretsch Brooklyn factory, making each set a true purposeful matching pair.
- *This is a vintage instrument and subject to the "marks" of K Istanbul manufacturing such as semi irregular cymbal holes and lathing scratches that are not blemishes, but rather a product of a process that was done completely by hand. Not all cymbals of this era will fit current cymbal stand and hi-hat stand cup/thread diameters*
- *Used and vintage cymbals are on display in our showroom and have been owned by a previous owner. Cymbal may show fingerprints or stick marks from being tested and demoed, or other signs of wear that have been noted in the description such as cracks, keyholes, ect. Used and vintage cymbals are non-returnable items.*
