Hard to find Paiste 19" 602 Pre-Serial Ride, 1889g. Can be used as a ride, crash/ride, or left-side ride.

This cymbal has a large 5/8 hole. It may have originally been sold as a symphonic cymbal pair or may have been drilled out by a previous owner. It does not impact how it sits on the stand as shown in the pictures. The diameter actually measures 19 1/16 inches, perhaps that's a metric size.

I have played it together in a live setting with a Paiste 20" pre-serial 602 that weighs 2233g and they both sound like part of the same family. There are no cracks or flea bites. Has patina, stick marks, and discoloration associated with a 50 year old cymbal.

Asking $170+$20 shipping NOW $140+$20 shipping. Also listed on Reverb. Interesting trades and reasonable offers will be considered. Thanks!

It's a great cymbal and very versatile (I think it used to be mine).

I got it in a trade for an SKB rolling hardware case. Was that you?

How well would it work as a crash? Seems about medium thin weight?

This is very crashable. It opens up fairly easy. As a crash it is a bit on the dark side. It would work well as a left side ride or a crash ride. I wouldn't personally use it as my main craah but that's a matter of taste. Unfortunately, I don't have good equipment to make a decent sound file.

As the former owner, Peter's description is very apt and I used it above my ride cymbal as a secondary darker crash and a washy ride. It's a great cymbal. I have too many Paistes and this one got shuffled out of my rotation. I played it pretty hard too and no issues as a result during my ownership. Whoever buys it gets a very nice cymbal
