”No Longer Made Paiste 404 20" RIDE! EXCELLENT CONDITION!! 2048 Grams!
SLIGHTLY TRASHY DRY! RESPONSIVE!!
Offered up for your immense pleasure is this No Longer Made Paiste 20" 404 Ride that is in EXCELLENT condition. Check out the pictures! There are NO
Nicks, Cracks, Dents, or Dings on this Hard to Find 20". It's in GREAT SHAPE with a lovely patina that has befriended it.
Of course, it is forged from the 2002 Alloy--but meaner.
In a devastating blow, Paiste treacherously replaced the 404 line with the crappy 502 line about 15-20 years ago. The two series are not even remotely comparable. The 404 was a great series because in the bright, clear, clean Paiste family tree, the 404 was the welcomed black sheep.
Darker, dirtier, trashier--this Paistes is "From the wrong side of the tracks." The unwelcomed cousin who shows up drunk at the baptism and yells from the back of the church. The same cousin who hits on the bridesmaid right before hurling all over the dance floor at your sister's wedding.
This is the 404. And with the demise of this series, this sound disappeared from the Paiste catalogue (or is at least serving an extended prison sentence.) Yes, you can get dark with the Traditional series...for $450. But those still sound Paiste clean. The 404s are nastier and trashier and damn I miss 'em.
As a matter of fact, the 404s were the thinnest cymbals in Paiste's arsenal during the 80s--2002s, Rudes, 505s, 3000s, all of these were much heavier than the 404s. I'll prove it. The weight is a THIN 2048 grams.
Nasty, semi-dark, dirty, trashy, with a quick decay and extremely responsive at lower volumes.
Blues, soul, rockabilly, funk, loops & samples, hip-hop, indie rock, folk, barrel-house, juke joints, speakeasies, porch fights, and in the back of the church!! That's where these 404s live. Soulful, organic, earthier, and nasty.
Unlike that cousin, it's volume remains controlled. This is the beauty of the 404s. And it's certainly no longer made.
So do yourself a favor and grab this No Longer Made NASTY Paiste 404 20" Ride. And hang onto it...for me, for you, for the roadhouse round yonder...”
