Paiste

Description

Recreated from the original Formula 602 bell bronze cymbals launched in 1959, these Paiste Formula 602 heavy crashes are great for drummers who crave volume and assertiveness. Their bright, powerful, solid crash sound cuts through in situations where thinner crashes aren't up to the task. This makes the Formula 602 heavy crash cymbals especially useful for hitting accents in rock and metal genres. They also perform as versatile rides thanks to their clear "ping" attack on the bow.

All cymbals in the relaunched Formula 602 series are based on master cymbals from Paiste's archive and made with the same traditional hand production techniques as in the 1960s. This process keeps their sound faithful to the iconic series that helped revolutionize popular music with its purity, control and projection.
