  • A classic and staple of many rock and jazz recordings from the late 60s and 70s! 
  • Vintage Paiste Pre Serial 602 18” LIGHT Ride or Crash Ride in fantastic shape. Take a look at the pictures - beautiful! And you can’t even get this cymbal today from Paiste.  

  • And being the smaller 18" size this beauty REMAINS CONTROLLED! It responds faster than the larger sizes and offers quick sticking.

  • It has a clean, tight feel and tone but it keeps a foot in the light and airy semi-complex tones.  It delivers that perfect 1960s clear 18” Ride tone that was on so many hit records.

  • At 1564 grams this rare 55 year old 602 plays like a smooth Medium Light Ride or Crash Ride. It makes a great main or a lovely Left Side Light 18”. 

  • The tone is smooth and a bit complex with a nice clean shimmer on top.

  • Crash on it for a late 60s Full Crash tone - it’s cuts a mix well.

  • As far as 602s go, this one is more complex than many I’ve heard. 

  • This is the tone that made Paiste famous - it sounds pre-eq-ed.  Amazing for the studio. Great solid bell for an 18”. Smooth as silk on choruses. Roars when crashed upon.

  • Goes from soft to loud with the utmost of ease. There’s a reason these Paiste 18s” were all over records.  

  • No issues. The Original TONE!
