You should check on ebay to see if their are any sets on there and also see what they're selling for...

Zyn cymbals were not made by Zildjian. Zyns are typically not worth too much, unless you can make out the words "Super Zyn" or a star in the logo. Even then, they're not worth as much as their Zildjian counterparts. 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 say...you get the sound of Paiste/Ludwig Standards for the price of used Sabian B8s. Score.

This^^^

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.

eBay might be it. Check on Sold and Completed listings. Good luck!

That sounds about right.They were made mostly by Italian cymbalsmiths POWS being held in the UK after WW II who were in no hurry to go back to Italy.They were sold by Premier and made of NS12(Zyn) and B20(super Zyn) alloys.

The only reason for any notoriety is because a certain drummer from Liverpool used one early on in his career with a certain band ,also from Liverpool.

The overall quality is hit or miss(mostly miss) hence the low resale price.Ebay is you best source of current market value.
