The 602 Ride, Re-imagined

The Paiste Formula 602 Modern Essentials 22" ride cymbal gives you warm, translucent sound, with a deep, controllable wash and silvery sheen. This effervescent ride delivers excellent dynamics, making it ideal across a broad range of musical styles. You'll also be delighted to know that the Paiste Formula 602 Modern Essentials 22" ride crashes beautifully.

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 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 602 Modern Essential 22" Ride

What a great cymbal that does it all. I also have a 602 medium 22" ride along and a 70's black label 2oo2 22" ride but I think the ME 22" wins by a nose. It just fits the ticket with about any music style with ease....A nice ping over a darker smokey wash with a great bell as well. Very close with the 602 med as the ping is very present but just darker and and slightly lower pitched with a lower more complex wash. Like the sound I was always looking for.

Another amazing! Paiste Cymbal!

Here is a amazing Cymbal... I have played Paiste Cymbals for over 30 years! They never cease to amaze me .. Great tone! A sound of their own.. This cymbal is one of sweetest ride cymbals I have in my arsenal... So glad I stepped up and got it.. I have two other rides.22". Zildjian K Constantinople Medium Thin Ride - High and A Sabian 22" AAX OMNI 22" ....both great cymbals in their own right.. But this cymbal is my favorite , Check it out you won't be sorry.
