Paiste Formula 602 Modern Essentials Crash - 16"
More On The Way Notify me

Versatile Crash with a Pure Tone and Explosive Attack

Touring and studio drummers who need their cymbals to cover a lot of ground can expect much from the Paiste Formula 602 Modern Essentials 16" crash. This extension of the classic Paiste 602 line was developed in close collaboration with Modern Drummer Hall of Famer Vinnie Colaiuta for transparency, richness, and warmth. The 16" Modern Essentials crash has a pure sound that's not too heavy on overtones, an explosive attack that cuts through a mix, and a good dynamic range to let the emotion of your performance come through onstage or on tape.

Paiste 602 Modern Essentials 16" Crash Cymbal at a Glance:
  • Modern Essentials: an explosive new take on the 602 sound
  • Made from Paiste CuSn20 bronze for rich, dark, and musical tones
  • A gigging drummer's cymbal with broad applications
Modern Essentials: an explosive new take on the 602 sound

Paiste views the Modern Essentials crashes as an extension to, rather than a replacement of, the classic 602 line. This 16" crash has the same transparent tone, stick definition, and workingman's versatility that drummers loved about the original series.

Made from Paiste CuSn20 bronze for rich, dark, and musical tones

Paiste's traditional CuSn20 bronze (80% copper/20% tin) is the same alloy used in Paiste's Masters cymbals and has been the gold standard for many cymbal makers for generations. A random hammering pattern gives this 16" crash a complex tone without sacrificing its place in a mix.

A gigging drummer's cymbal with broad applications

Colaiuta and Paiste worked hard not to make their Modern Essentials collection too niche a sound, making sure that every crash, splash, and ride worked for styles from live arena rock to studio pop to swing. If you play a wide range of styles and need a crash that translates, Sweetwater drummers recommend checking out the Paiste Formula 602 Modern Essentials 16" crash.
