Default Comparison to 50s/60s Zildjian Hi-Hats

I have a pair of late 50s/early 60s Zildjian A hi-hats. 13" and thin with a nice jazzy sound that I play with my old Ludwig kit. Unfortunately, they're too beaten-up and need to be replaced.

Aside from seeking out another pair 50s/60s A's, does anyone have recommendations on hi-hats with a similar vibe?

I've been seeing good things on the Turkish-made cymbals (Instanbul, Bosphorus, etc.), but I'm open to any brand. I have a pretty new set of 14" Zildjian K's, but they are a little too thick and bright to my liking.
