Mitchell Hi-Hat No.850 | Model THA-I-B

Post by lolomonstro » Fri Nov 23, 2018 8:10 pm

Hey guys, I'm trying to nail down a value for a hi-hat that I acquired a while back and I'm not having much luck.
I'm wondering if it's more valuable as a piece of film memorabilia or something I should sell as just an old piece of gear.

No. 850, Model No. THA-I-B is engraved on the plate

Any help would be great :)

Thanks

Nice collector's piece. The badge is always a plus. Unfortunately the market is very slim these days. To display a prized camera you still beed a period head to mount on it which cuts down the applications.
As a working piece, most new film/video people rarely use or know what a highhat is. Handheld cameras and sand/beanbags have taken the place of more formal supports that were needed for 75+lb cameras.
From what I have watched over the years, best guess on pricing would be somewhere between $140-250.
Hope that helps. ED.
