Super-thin crash cymbal with light, airy feel and complex sound

The Paiste Formula 602 Classic Sounds paperthin crash cymbals offer a warm, silvery and airy sound, perfect for sensitive playing. The soft, papery feel makes these crashes especially suited to lighter sticks, rods and brushes. Excellent for mallet rolls. Creates a complex mix of tones that shine in jazz, fusion, blues and classical genres.

Recreated from the original Formula 602 bell bronze cymbals launched in 1959, all cymbals in the Formula 602 Classic Sounds series are based on master cymbals from Paiste's archive.
