The Paiste Formula 602s have long been revered as some of the finest cymbals ever made. Known for their complex, silvery, breathy tones these cymbals worked their way into the hearts of such noted drummers as Joe Morello, Charlie Watts, Art Blakey, and Ndugu Chancler. When Paiste discontinued production of the 602s in the late 1980s drummers worldwide reacted with an utter sense of shock and disbelief. Over the last twenty somewhat years the 602s have become some of the most sought after cymbals on the market, and every time one cracked it was like witnessing the death of a Bald Eagle or Bengal Tiger. In more recent years players have been writing Paiste suggesting, even begging them to bring back the legendary line. Well I’m pleased to say that all of our waiting and letters have paid off, as Paiste have now reissued the Formula 602s!
The Formula 602 14” Medium Hi-Hats are sharp and articulate with a smooth, buttery feel and great stick response. Their bright, silvery tone that has become something of folklore among drummers provides a beautifully crisp chick sound while still creating a shimmering, breathy wash. To a certain degree I feel that words cannot properly convey how amazing these cymbals are and that you just have to hear them for yourself. I think you’ll be pleasantly surprised when you’re reacquainted with the cymbal sound from some of your favorite records. So pick up your set of Formula 602s today, before their discontinued again!
