  • These Paistes are 35 years old but they’re pretty damn clean! Especially for the thin 404s! 

  • And they’re anything but “Heavy”. That’s laughable. 813 992 grams is pretty thin - much thinner than New Beats and most modern Hi Hats. This is like Kerope weights or less. 

  • And if you’ve been keeping score at home then you know that the Paiste 404s were some of the MOST underrated cymbals they ever made. 

  • They’re like the foul-mouthed cousin to the Giant Beat.  Same alloy, same THIN weight with great response, but surprisingly more complex - a bit dirtier sounding. Which is damn nice because everything Paiste is so fastidiously clean. 

  • Well, these have a pinch of organicness that usually eludes Paistes. 

  • Light, airy, whispy, delicately complex, incredibly responsive. Very nice warm CHICK. 
  • Imagine if Paiste made thin 1940s Trans Stamp Hi Hats out of the 2002 alloy - this would be them.

  • Incredible shape! 

  • Very low to medium volume, terrific with brushes, sing with a light touch. Amazing for recording. Total Aaron Sterling or Steve Jordan very musical vibe.
