Re: Can you tell me anything by this Paiste stamp

The black label is most probably a Signature and the red label a 2002 (or less likely, a discontinued 3000 series).

Re: Are Formula 602 16" Crashes More Rare

Charlie Watts used to play a 16" 602 thin crash as far as I am aware and its sound is over many Stones albums. I think that 602 thin crashes that survived for over 50 years are certainly quite rare....

1971 Ludwig Super Classic

I restored this set which was painted white by a previous owner. Beautiful White Marine Pearl which was actually preserved by the paint I think as there is no fading or discoloration to the wrap.
