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.

"Contrasting this collection of unique specialty items is the 22" Formula 602 Medium ride, which is designed to be an easy-to- control, clean-sounding, all-purpose cymbal. Formula 602 cymbals are handmade from CuSn20 bronze with the same methods the company has used for since the 1960s. Every drummer needs to own a general-purpose ride cymbal, and the 22" Formula 602" Medium fits the bill perfectly. It has a warm, musical tone with clean, sparkling articulation, a full, rich wash, and a clear but unobtrusive bell. You can swing it, rock it, crash it, or brush it, and it responds with aplomb." - Michael Dawson
"The Medium ride undoubtedly retains the sound of the much older 602s, but at 22" it is a couple of inches bigger and that much deeper and mellower. As such we prefer it and really feel it is worthy of the name. It is in fact a slight improvement on the originals. This is a versatile cymbal, but versatile in lower to medium volume ranges, so you can play jazz and rock with it, when you're looking for a pure, warm and precise touch. It's a great chill-out cymbal, the stick definition is not too hard-nosed but hovers over a lustrous broad body without being disconnected. Likewise the bell is clear but not disembodied. A sweet and warm instrument, but in no way dull or insipid." - Geoff Nicholls
