Versatile Ride with Good Definition and a Big Wash

Touring and studio drummers who need their cymbals to cover a lot of ground can expect much from the Paiste Formula 602 Modern Essentials 24" Ride. 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 24" Modern Essentials Ride has a pure sound that's not too heavy on overtones, good stick definition to cut through a mix, a clear bell ping, a huge musical wash, and a good dynamic range to let you make the emotion of your performance come through onstage or on tape.

Paiste 602 Modern Essentials 24" Ride 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 Ride as an extension to, rather than a replacement of, the classic 602 line. This 24" ride has the same transparent tone, good 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 24" ride 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 live arena rock to studio pop to swing. If you play a wide range of styles and need a ride sound that translates, Sweetwater drummers recommend checking out the Paiste Formula 602 Modern Essentials 24" Ride cymbal.
