  • If you love the Hand Hammered - ness of the Paiste Masters Series but still want that inimitable CLEANER 602 DARK Paiste tone…

  • …..and then want to crash on it too…..
  • Then get this 22”! 

  • This gorgeous Prototype is a perfect blend of the Masters and 602 Series with a pinch of Signature thrown in.  

  • Fully lathed, shimmering Paiste 22” heavily Hand Hammered Dark Prototype in Immaculate Condition. 

  • Check out the craftsmanship on this resplendent Proto!  Extremely Hand Hammered surface - I mean more than almost any Paiste you’ll see. Rippled all over the surface.

  • It falls perfectly between a Masters and a 602 Modern Essentials. 
  • 3026 grams gives it a medium weight - similar to a Signature FULL Ride but this 22” is Hand Hammered - it’s more complex and organic than the Signature Series. And it’s definitely darker. 

  • But it’s also cleaner looking and sounding than the Masters Series, and a bit smoother than the Modern Essentials. 

  • That’s the magic.  It’s a perfect blend.  

  • Dark. Strong, crisp stick attack with a chime-like definition that’s dark. Medium low in pitch. Plays medium full with still a strong attack. Classic 6” Paiste bell that cuts like a Signature Series. Shadows of Hand Hammered complexity. 

  • Overall very dark and SMOOTH sounding. 

  • Absolutely GLORIOUS sounding DARK CRASH. 

  • Stunning!    

  • Paiste makes great cymbals and great series, but sometimes you wish they would blend two series together! 

  • Well here they did!  

  • Perfect for soft to loud settings.  

  • Immaculate condition!  Perfect.  

  • Nothing like it in the catalog.
