Paiste cymbals:
2002: 18", 19", 20" crashes
Formula 602: 14" xtra heavy hi hats, 24" heavy
Sound creation: 20" dark china

Beautiful track and recording, you can immediately identify the crash size you’re hearing on each hit, it’s incredible how just one inch of difference makes for such a particular and defined sound. Loved the ride too, very clear and controlled considering it’s a 24”.

Thanks!
I don't know why people are so afraid of big rides!
I've always played 22's and 24's, I prefer 24's of a medium/heavy weight. With such a big "slow" cymbal you have to "plan ahead". The fundament pitch is low so the ping stands clear compared to a 20" (and doesn't get clangy like a 20"!).
You can do hard accents by laying the stick across the cymbal with out it washing out, you have to put a lot of energy into her in order to get her going, once you do, she'll start to roar!
The 602 24" heavy is about the same weight as a A. Zil 24" med. ride, it sounds similar but is more "polite" than the Zil's are. Both the 24" med and ping rides are some of my favorites!
