Here's one for the Collectors...

I'll keep this one simple. Sure you could spend $620 on a NEW pair of 602s. 

But why not play a the 50 YEAR OLD ORIGINALS!! That are WAY MORE COMPLEX THAN THE MODERN PAISTES! AND THEY COST A HELL OF A LOT LESS TOO!! 

YES, THE ORIGINALS FROM the 1960s!! The ones that MADE the great music we all hear! 

AND IN THIN FIFTEENS!! And this pair is VERY COMPLEX SOUNDING! STUNNING!! 

Posted for your immense pleasure is this lovely pair of very Hard to Find, HUGE PRE-SERIAL Vintage Paiste B20 ALLOY THINNER 602 EARLY 15" Hihats that are in EXCELLENT CONDITION!! That's right. EARLY Paiste 602 15" Hihats!!  Remarkably there are

NO 

Nicks, cracks, dents, or dings on these Pre-Serial beauties.  Just a nice patina that has graced them over 5 decades. They are in GREAT Condition---especially for being thin 602s!

As you can see, these Thin Beauties are pre-serial.  Paiste later added serial #s (I believe in the early 70s) .

 

AND these 602s are fairly THIN. 

The Top Cymbal weighs a lightweight 1076 grams. The Bottom Cymbal weighs in at 1157 grams. 

And that's THIN or PAPERTHIN, depending on your illicit habits (ok, ok,  no need to get alarmed, just a little cymbal gram weight humor there.)

Papery, wispy, ultra responsive, COMPLEX, warm B20 Vintage Paiste 602 Tone!! Yes, they sound THAT good. A no brainer. Classic Complex Thin 602 Tone.

And unfortunately Paiste makes NOTHING that sounds like these 602s today. Don't get me wrong, I like the new modern 602s.....but they sure as hell don't sound like these played in beauties!!! 

You can use these Early 602 Hihats for whatever the hell you want. Jazz, funk, soul, blues, definitely session work, trios, folk, pop, old school funk, rockabilly.

Just don't SLAM on them, because they are THIN. And there are hardly any of these THIN 602 Paistes around these days. So we want to keep these Rare Beauties alive.

Ummmm....

Did I mention that these are Early Pre-Serial 602s?  AND THEY'RE FIFTEENS!!!!

$620 for the stiff "re-issues?" 

This one is too easy!

Do yourself a favor and grab these gorgeous sounding collectible Hard to Find HUGE and COMPLEX Vintage Paiste 602 EARLY 15" Hihats. And hang onto them dammit!

Use these Beauties on your next gig or store them in the closet and watch them appreciate. 

Because they sure as hell will!!
