One of the world’s most referred and legendary cymbal lines in history. Renowned and loved for its fine, pure, soft, delicate musical tone, that requires precise playing. Reintroduction of the most popular models, faithfully re-created in terms of sound and look in 2011. Forged from the legendary «602 Bronze» (CuSn20), handcrafted from start to finish by highly skilled Swiss craftsmen, Formula 602 Classic Sounds cymbals produce a true, pure sound of unique clarity and consistency.
Formula 602 Classic Thin Crash
Silvery, breathy, transparent.
Fairly wide range, slightly complex and dense mix.
Soft shimmering and velvety feel.
A light crash cymbal with a definite retro character suited for many styles in that music genre.
"Their pitch spread was great, and each responded well to mallet and edge rolls with a majestic crescendo of clean tone. The sound emanating from these crashes was silvery and round. They never got too loud, making them ideal for gigs where cymbal volume is a concern. The 18" also doubled nicely as a light ride. It never had that hollow ride sound that plagues many thin crash cymbals when struck on the bow." - J.R. Frondelli
"These crashes responded extremely well to the lightest flick of a pencil-size stick yet retained its tone when hit with force. This broad dynamic range was astounding. I found myself probing for discrepancies or flaws, but I honestly couldn't find any. These 602s are marked "thin," but Paiste stops short of designating them as rides or crashes. The application is up for grabs and depends on the unique touch of each drummer. They can articulate the passage of time as rides, but that's not their forte; they're built to respond like lightning" - T. Bruce Witted
