  • This is one of the most COMPLEX sounding Paiste 602 Crashes you will hear. Guaranteed. Most of the weight is in the bell - the edges bend with ease.

  • Very thin. Very paper-y and light sounding - you have to pull through 20 or 30 vintage 602 16s to find one like this, and that literally takes years. 

  • Why the hell spend money on a big box store regular-ass 602??  That everyone can get? 

  • Check out this VERY RARE ORIGINAL Black Label Vintage Paiste FactoryStamped “THIN CRASH” that’s damn near possible to find! 

  • Especially as a 16” and especially this thin 

  • Famous Vintage Stamp 16”  “THIN CRASH.”

  • Right out of the John Bonham era. The real deal. 

  • At 1036 grams the edges are easily bendable and this 16” delivers a FULL and COMPLEX Paiste Crash tone.

  • THIS is the SOUND that put Paiste on the map in the 60s and 70s.  They quickly became “the other, serious choice!”

  • What’s interesting about this specific 602 THIN CRASH is that the re-issues don’t capture THIS Vintage 602 tone. This cymbal is much more complex sounding than the re-issue and it has a much broader spread! It’s not even close actually. 

  • This cymbal has much more character and it’s extremely responsive.  You could use it with brushes and hand percussion. 

  • One of the softest and most bendable 602 crashes you will come across. 

  • And damn near impossible to find. Not your regular 602. 

  • Great shape for how thin it is and being a half-century old. So thin and malleable that the edges dip a bit. - the alloy is that soft. The terrific light patina that mellows it out beautifully!

  • You can’t “re-issue” a life lived.
