The Paiste 8" Formula 602 Modern Essentials Splash Cymbal is snarling and silvery. These cymbals have a fairly wide range and a complex mix. They are very responsive, but with a soft feel and an explosive sound. It is tuned low to provide lively accents in a moderate volume setting. Designed in conjunction with Vinnie Colaiuita he describes them like this: "They are sweet, they are these kind of punctuation marks in the background."
