And it won't sound like this DARK SOUNDING 36 year old BLUE LABEL PAISTE 602 MEDIUM RIDE!!! This beauty has aged gracefully!  Overall clean but still with a softer, played-in, super shimmering BLUE LABEL vibe.

And this particular 20" is dark and lower pitched but still offers a chime-like solid stick attack! 

Posted for your immense enjoyment is this ORIGINAL BLUE LABEL 1983 Paiste 602 20" Medium Ride SIZZLE that is in EXCELLENT condition.  Check out the pictures.  I am happy to report that there are


Nicks, Cracks, Dents, or Dings on this vintage B20 gem.  It's in GREAT SHAPE with a light patina that will befriend this beauty in the years to come and a pinch of centerhole wear (because someone played this beauty, it's a smooth one!)

Classic 602 from the Class of '83! Super smooth lathing Blue Label 602. Clean. And overall surprisingly dark sounding.

With a weight of 2474 grams this lovely 602 plays like a great, DARK sounding smooth Medium Ride Sizzle. It yields a chime-like, glowing stick attack that is followed by that classic 60s warm  SIZZLE wash.  It makes a great main or a lovely Left Side Light Ride. Paperthin 602s sound gorgeous, but they lack projection. THIS 20" 602 cuts nicely-it's not afraid of amplified music. AND it still maintains that Clean, Clear 30 year old Paiste tone. The lathing and hammering is all Blue Label 602-beautiful.

As you can see this 20" is outfitted with 4 rivets. 

Strong definition on top. Darker leanings, especially for a Medium. Smooth, clean fairly mellow articulation that still cuts nicely. Balanced, even pitch. No harsh tones. Lower pitched. Overall controlled wash with the gorgeous glow of brass rivets.

THAT is this ORIGINAL 1983 602!

This 1983 Paiste BLUE LABEL 602 20" Medium Ride Sizzle is gorgeous for Rock, Jazz, Bop, Swing, funk, fusion, country, Classic Rock, pop, and ANYTIME you need a Paiste B20 Alloy 20" Ride. It absolutely SINGS in the studio.  So hang onto this 602 and keep it in great condition and it will definitely appreciate.

 $477 for a new 602 20"?

There's NO need! Save your money!!!  This 36 year old 20" is beautiful. And it's DARKER sounding than the Re-issue.
