Paiste Cymbals @ 2013 Winter NAMM

Perhaps the most earthshaking endorser news of 2012 was when L.A. session legend Vinnie Colaiuta decided to rethink his long-held drum and cymbal allegiances. This tidal change included a switch to Paiste, which in turn led to Colaiuta’s input into the new 602 Modern Essentials series. We got our first opportunity to see and hear the fruit of this collaboration at the 2013 Winter NAMM show when company representative Andrew Shreve walked us through the entire collection.
