Paiste 14" Sound Formula Heavy Hi-Hat (Top) Early 1990s

Reverb Estimated Used Price Range

  • $75$130

Featuring a brighter, more contemporary sound pallette, the Sound Formula series utilizes the same proprietary alloy as the flagship Signature models. In 1994 the series underwent a substantial redesign, giving the cymbals more pronounced lathing and hammer patterns similar to the Signature series, which absorbed the Sound Formula series into its ranks in 1999.

Full-bodied and fairly high in pitch, the Sound Forumla Heavy Hi-Hats provide excellent stick definition and strong projection.
