  • With the help and inspiration of the legendary Vinnie Colaiuta, Paiste created one of their greatest series with their 602 Modern Essentials.  

  • And you need not spend $570 staring at a google photo and wondering what they sound like.

  • Listen to these and dispel all uncertainty! These were hand picked and they sound amazing. 

  • Gorgeous 14” Paiste 602 Modern Essential Hihats in absolutely glorious condition! 

  • These 602s provide the perfect elixir of 602 tone with a bit more cut and projection than the standard classic models. 

  • And that makes a lot of sense, Vinnie Colaiuta plays stadiums! He needs great tone WITH projection. 

  • 858  and 1124 grams.  FAIRLY THIN for 14s” and not clankers!  Far from it - but with enough weight to cut a mix, whether it’s live or in the studio.  

  • Still that Top cymbal at 858 gives a terrific response and darker tone! 

  • Paiste describes these glorious 14s” as:
    Rich, warm, lush, deep. Wide range, complex mix. Giving and responsive feel. Broad, warm open sound. Compact, lush chick sound. Extremely versatile hi-hat, perfectly suited for dynamic, articulated playing in a wide range of styles. “They are just chunky enough, but not overpowering. They are a little more chocolaty than the classic 602s”, describes Vinnie Colaiuta.”

  • And that is accurate!  The key words are “warm, lush, dynamic, not overpowering.”

  • This particular pair also has a darkness with a pinch of complexity but they still retain that inimitable Paiste CLEAN tone.   

  • As versatile as the man who brought them to life! 

  • Use them for any genre! Vinnie certainly does. 

  • Amazing condition.  No issues. Demoed for the video and that’s about it. Very clean!
