I can see they are quite rare, as they are mentioned almost nowhere. I have the 14" Hi Hat and the 20" Ride. How much worth would you say they are? The ones I own are in good condition and have very little use.

Thank you in advance!

I don't know about price. It's hard to guess because they might be priced like Italian cymbals, or a bit lower than Avedis Zildjians of the same period, or you might just find somebody who really wants them to complete a collection. They won't be a gold mine, if that is what you are thinking.

Meanwhile, if you can get pictures that would be great. I don't think I've got any in my Sabian project (trying to document the different eras and models) database. I'm not making much progress because my time is currently going into the Avedis pages (in my signature) but I still store away any information which comes my way. And if you can't figure out how to upload them here, just PM me and I'll give you my email address to send them to and I'll put them up for you.

And here is one on eBay (item number 350964550715 and you may need to find it that way because the code which links in ebay urls seems to choke on this one and just leave a big blank area). But here is the pic which is now in my permanent archive.
