New from NAMM 2015, the 22" Paiste 1041722 Formula 602 Classic Medium Ride epitomizes the easy to control, pure, all-purpose ride cymbal. Designed in the middle of the last century, it still sets standards with its high-class workmanship and classic look.
Formula 602's are entirely made by hand from the originally used CuSn20 bronze in Switzerland using traditional
methods that have remained unchanged in over half a century.
