- Here’s a very hard-to-find Paiste that comes from the hallowed BLUE LABEL years - 1984 to be exact.
- There’s no need to go $440 deep on a new stock photo “re-issue” Paiste 602 18”. That’s folly.
- This Rare “Medium” is the Real Deal - FULL and shimmering with fantastic projection - but not clanking.
- The 80s were a pivotal time for Paiste and this Blue Label Era of Paistes has a cleaner, more shimmering vibe than the 60s and 70s 602s. With the advent of MTV and videos, The Blue PAISTE was splashed across TV screens everywhere. Paiste truly became known as that “other clean choice” during this decade.
- And that is exactly what we have this specific 18” MEDIUM.
Weighing 1618 grams it delivers a full, cutting attack that projects magnificently without sacrificing tone. Being nearly 40 years old the metal has tempered and the edges are slightly bendable giving it a slightly softer feel for a Medium.
- As you may know, Paiste Mediums are considered “Multi-Application Cymbals” - similar to the Giant Beats. They can be used as Crashes, Crash Rides, or Rides.
- This 18” can sit atop many different stands on your drum set.
- Perfect for low to loud volumes - extremely versatile.
- Inimitable clean and full Paiste tone that cemented their reputation for being “the other serious choice.”
- No issues. Great shape. Light patina. Rare.
