  • The good Lord did not put Vintage half-century-old Paistes on this Earth so that you could spend $570 on a pair of new ones with a stock photo and a guess at what they sound like. 

  • 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. And this pair is very clean. 

  • 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. 

  • This particular pair has fantastic THIN gram weights: 838 and 902 grams.  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.
