"Paiste's Sound Edge hi-hats have been the source of much folklore since John Bonham picked up on them in the 70s, but the company introduced the model in 1967. These were the first "problem solver" cymbals. Their design negates the need for fiddling with the bottom cymbal tilter to eliminate the air lock found with traditional hats, but their design also imparts a unique sound. The rippled edge stiffens the bottom cymbal and renders a more focused and magnetic open/closed sound. When played loudly, the 602 Sound Edge hi-hats possessed an open sound that was washy and throaty, with a silvery top end, yet they were never overpowering. At lower dynamics, they were extremely sensi¬ tive. Open/closed "barks" were quick and tight with an underlying richness, and the pedal chick was focused and pointed." - J.R. Frondelli
