Paiste 22" Formula 602 Classic Thin Flat Ride (1042422)
In the late 1960s, Paiste developed the idea of a cymbal without a bell. This resulted in the innovative Flat Ride Concept, for which international patents were awarded at the time. The revolutionary, very defined and controlled Flat Ride Sound has since become part of important recorded music in Jazz, notably so with prestigious band leaders who helped shape modern Jazz.
Due to the missing bell, Flat Rides are very easy to control. Since a Flat Ride hardly builds up, the airy, unobtrusive and cultivated ping remains well defined at all volumes, particularly with light play. This is especially advantageous in acoustic music or when accompanying soloists, since the cymbal never covers the rest of the band, even when played dynamically.
The light weight 22" Formula 602 Thin Flat Ride models feature the incomparable purity and clarity typical of Formula 602 cymbals. The airy ping exhibits silky softness, and the overall sound is very deep. These buttery soft cymbals are ideal for delicate playing at low volumes.
Formula 602 cymbals are made in Switzerland from various bronze alloys using traditional craftsmanship that has remained unchanged in over half a century.
