A lively medium thin Crash/Ride with a washy, crisp stick sound and medium long sustain. Ideal for soft to loud playing situations.

Paiste develops the Formula 602 in the late 1950's from the traditional 20% Bronze, a cymbal line rooted in Jazz and acoustic Rock'n'roll that exhibits a cool, rich, sophisticated sound character and gains Paiste the first wave of international notoriety - Yet the company does not rest, experiments with CuSn8 bronze alloy, and pioneers CuSn8 cymbals in 1963 - Around the same time, the world is experiencing the rapid expansion of Rock music, which emerges forcefully from the foundations of Blues, Folk, Country and Rock'n'Roll as bands like the Rolling Stones, Yardbirds, Animals, Beatles, Kinks and the Who take the stage - The electrified sound they generate is groundbreaking - Popular music, simply stated, becomes loud and irreverent - The new bronze alloy Paiste is already working with turns out to be perfect for the new soundscape with its amplified volume and frequencies - In 1967 Paiste launches Giant Beat cymbals, which are characterized by warmth, strength and brilliance such as drummers had not known before.
