  • Why the hell spend money on a big box store regular-ass 602??  That everyone can get?

  • Check out this RARE ORIGINAL PRE SERIAL Vintage Paiste 18” CRASH that’s damn near impossible to find!

  • Right out of the John Bonham era! The Real Deal! 

  • At 1468 grams it plays like a PAPER Thin to Thin and delivers a FULL and COMPLEX Paiste Crash tone - but it still has that famously CLEAN Paiste sound. 

  • THIS is the SOUND that put Paiste on the map in the 60s and 70s.  They quickly became “the other, serious choice!”

  • What’s interesting about this specific 602 THIN CRASH is that the re-issues don’t capture THIS Vintage 602 tone. 
  • This Pre Serial 18” 602 cymbal is much more complex sounding than the re-issue and it has a much broader spread! It’s not even close actually. This cymbal has much more character

  • Sounds like 1960s ROCK. 

  • Great shape. No issues. The edges are easily bendable and have a subtle wave to them because it’s so soft and thin. The terrific light patina that mellows it out beautifully! Not easy to find - especially not one this complex and soft! 

  • You can’t “re-issue” a life lived.
