The Paiste Formula 602 Modern Essentials Series

Developed with the input of legendary drummer Vinnie Colaiuta, Paiste's Formula 602 Modern Essentials Series gives you a fresh take on the traditional 602 alloy formulation. Sweetwater's engineers have found that, with the right miking techniques, these cymbals sit perfectly in your mix without EQ or compression. That takes a load off - without hours spent getting your top end to sound right and integrate into the rest of your mix, you can spend your time more productively. And productivity, as we know, is a good thing.

Paiste - a tradition of innovation

Headquartered in Switzerland, Paiste meets the creative needs of drummers and percussionists with innovative cymbals, gongs, and bronze percussion instruments. Founded at the beginning of the 20th Century, Paiste lays claim to a number of cymbal firsts, including the first use of 8% bronze, the wavy-edged hi-hat bottom cymbal, the bell-less flat ride, unlathed hammered cymbals, color-coated cymbals, China cymbals with a downturned edge, and the invention of their Signature Bronze Alloy. World-class drummers such as Bill Bruford, Stewart Copeland, and Vinnie Colaiuta have long relied on Paiste cymbals to forge their signature sounds - and you can, too!

Paiste Formula 602 Modern Essentials 18" Crash Features:
  • A medium weight crash with shimmering highs and open low-end
  • Lively intensity and long sustain glues your kit together
  • Medium weight strikes the perfect balance between brightness and durability
  • Soft, washy, slightly shimmering stick sound for delicate articulation without pinginess
