Default Re: Vintage Zildjian Zyn Hi Hats

Probably the closest comparison, price-wise, is Zyns sell for *about* as much as used Sabian B8s, and Super Zyns sell for roughly what used XS20s sell for. They're cheap enough to keep around, I'd get the sound of Paiste/Ludwig Standards for the price of used Sabian B8s. Score.

Zyn = not much.
Super Zyn = surprisingly a little more desirable. I can only imagine nostalgia has more to do with this than the quality of the pies themselves. I've met quite a few guys (including me) that learnt on these things and seem to look back on them with fond memories.

Either way, they are Zyn......not Zildjian and as such their going rate won't be the same.
