  • These Hihats are some of the CLEANEST, shimmering glassy sounding hihats Paiste ever produced.  

  • These are absolutely phenomenal sounding Hihats. 

  • Long discontinued and very Rare, Paiste Sound Formula 13” Medium Heavy Hihats in shiny shape! 

  • These beauties are 25 years old and are from Paistes cleanest sounding era! 

  • As some of you may recall, the Sound Formulas were like an alternate version of Paiste Signatures - they were released at the same time and they were SO close to the Signatures that Paiste discontinued them.

  • The Sound Formulas were a bit glassier sounding than the Signatures, and that is definitely the case with these 13” Med Heavies.  

  • Being the Rare 13s”, these beauties are ultra crisp and TIGHT - much more so than the 14s”. And the smaller size gives them a much faster decay and playability.  
  • 768 grams for the Top cymbal and a perfect 1100 grams for the Bottom cymbal. 

  • They provide the perfect New Beat style CHICK  - it cuts extremely well. That Heavy bottom cuts beautifully in a mix.

  • The lathing is Signature - like but SUPER FINE. 

  • Very Dark for Paistes. Very dark for 13s”. 

  • Incredibly crisp. Clean sound. Even DRY. The overtones are controlled. Medium Lower pitched and dark with a great cutting ability and fast play- and that’s not an easy combination to find.

  • These may very well be the Sound Creations of the future.  They were rare when made and they’re dark and sound incredible. 

  • Great shape for 25 years old.  No issues. Light golden patina. 

  • Paiste offers nothing like these today. And the Signatures they do offer are over half a grand.

  • These things destroy the half-ass Paiste Precisions.
