"They are nice and transparent and as the cymbal gets bigger you really start hearing the warmth project a little more", describes Vinnie Colaiuta.

Formula 602 Modern Essentials cymbals combine the essence of the Formula 602 Classic Sounds models - transparency and stick definition - with the richness, warmth, darkness and a bit of complexity of the Signature Traditionals series besides providing slightly more pizazz than its Classic Sounds.

Forged from the legendary 602 Bronze (CuSn20), offering a complete new wide and dynamic sound dimension, developed in close collaboration with Vinnie Colaiuta, handcrafted from start to finish by highly skilled Swiss craftsmen, conceived and executed according to Vinnie's uncompromising sound concepts for a wide all-round application.
