  • Absolutely glorious nearly 30 year old Paiste Traditional from the very 1st Year of production  

  • Warm. Great attack. Subtle glow. Delicate. Woody. 

  • It goes toe-to-toe with anything they’ve ever made.

  • It sounds like it’s 70 years old. 

  • Discontinued, 1996 Paiste Traditional Medium 20” and it’s adorned with three brass cluster rivets for a very subtle glow. 

  • 2122 grams. 

  • Glowing warm, soft, and delicate with a woody, stick attack that is much more dry and pronounced than the Light and Thin Rides. 

  • This being the First Year Etched Logo, it is DARKER, warmer, and more complex than the modern version.

  • Very warm and organic sounding with a fantastic stick attack. Dark. Semi-complex but still with control. Easily crashable.  Gorgeous 3 brass rivet sizzle that extends this light, warm wash beautifully. Subtle. Glowing.

  • Low to medium volumes.  Amazing under the mic.

  • A 3 decade old Paiste Traditional is an incredible cymbal.

  • Very hard to find! 1st year. Crashes with ease. Soft alloy. 

  • Great condition for its age - typical light use. Golden patina. 

  • Playable. Collectible.
