  • The good Lord did not put Vintage half-century-old Paistes on this Earth so that you could spend $622 on a pair of new ones. 

  • I'm serious.

  • I'm so serious that the sentence "I'm serious" got its own bullet point.

  • That is absolutely preposterous to spend that on a "Reissue" when you can have the REAL DEAL 1960s 602s for less money.

  • This is the sound that put Paiste on the map in the 1960s and 70s, not the reissue…THIS. 

  • This is the sound that you've heard on all those famous recordings in the last 60 years. And the reissues are nice but they lack the light complexity of the originals. 

  • This particular pair has fantastic THIN gram weights: 823 & 970.  Even and balanced. 

  • Famous light, whispy, airy, warm and breathy, complex and responsive tone. 

  • Of course, they have that wonderful splashy 602 tone when opened. When played with your foot they deliver a very warm CHUP tone that sounds like it belongs to Billy Higgins.  

  • Stunning, 50-year-old patina, mellows these 14s" out perfectly.

  • Light. Thin. A joy to record. Iconic. 602s from the 1960s. 

  • The REAL DEAL. 

  • There are absolutely NO issues except the jealously hurled at you from other drummers.
