OVERVIEW

Uniquely warm, crystal-like sounds.

The Paiste Formula 602 Series Flat Ride responds with a very balanced and controlled feel. The absence of a bell creates pearly, woody stick sound over a silvery wash. This very sensitive cymbal perfectly suits jazz or other styles that require soft playing at lower volume levels, and is perfect for studio applications.

FEATURES
20"

The return of a much-coveted jazz cymbal.

Nothing else like it

Comments about Paiste Formula 602 Series Flat Ride:

In a word, this cymbal sounds angelic. When played with the style of music for which it's intended, (i.e. NOT Slipknot) your band mates will smile.
If you're a rock player, this cymbal is probably not for you unless you play some really quiet passages. But if you play jazz -- especially acoustic -- and want a cymbal that literally sounds like crystal, with stick definition to die for, this is your baby. If there's any "downside" at all to this cymbal it's simply volume; it's just not that loud. So, just mic it if you need to. I'm 53 years old and have been playing drums since I was 16 -- my first cymbal was a beautiful 22" K Zildjian and I now own dozens of "pies" from all kinds of makes and manufacturers. For sheer pleasing tone when struck with a fresh, wood-tipped stick, nothing, IMHO, beats the "new" Paiste Flat Ride. It makes me smile every time I play it.
Beautifully made. Not a flaw anywhere.
I'm only giving this a 9 instead of a 10 because it's the most I've ever paid for a cymbal, ever, and lots of drummers just can't afford it. Buy the best and cry once, though.
