Forged from the legendary «602 Bronze» (CuSn20), offering a complete new wide and dynamic sound dimension, developed in close collaboration with Vinnie Colaiuta, handcrafted from start to finish by highly skilled Swiss craftsmen, conceived and executed according to Vinnie’s uncompromising sound concepts for a wide all-round application. Formula 602 Modern Essentials cymbals combine the essence of the Formula 602 Classic Sounds models – transparency and stick definition – with the richness, warmth, darkness and a bit of complexity of the Signature Traditionals series besides providing slightly more pizzazz than its Classic Sounds siblings.
Formula 602 Modern Essentials Ride
Full, rich, warm, strong, deep, silvery.
Wide range, complex mix.
Responsive, even feel.
Warm sparkling stick sound over a wide, deep wash.
Fairly quick, strong crash sound.
Extremely dynamic and lively ride cymbal, suitable for numerous musical styles.
"The 24" ride is medium weight like the rest and is initially pretty soft, dark and mellow. Tap it and you get a long sustain with pleasing overtones, the sort that never descend into grating discord. Crash it though and it screams out, loud and vivid - bright yet still warm. Also bright is the bell, which is somewhat detached, perky and sharp, contrasting with the sumptuous ride. Good stick definition is a given, and despite the powerful crash this is not a washy ride, it retains its distinct, solid bearing at all volume levels." - Geoff Nicholls
