he PAISTE 2002 Wild Crash Cymbals are built to scream wildly and - to last! The 18” Wild Crash Cymbal is an aggressive, hissing, roaring and very sturdy crash cymbal for louder musical applications in aggressive drumming styles.
Cymbals can get lost in the complex layers of the raw energy of today’s new rock music. Cymbal sounds should always blend well with the music, no matter what volume. If your cymbals are drowning in the overall sound, you will tend to overplay and your cymbals will most likely end up cracking.
This is where the PAISTE 2002 Wild Crashes come in with their aggressive mid-range attack and a sizzling wash underneath. From a group of four sizes (the others being 17”, 19” and 20”) the 18” Wild Crash gives a strong, piercing crash with a growling decay but it has very responsive and balanced feel, especially controllable while crash/riding.

During the 1960s developing Beat and Rock music required cymbal sounds to match the new frequencies and volume levels and in 1967 the Giant Beat series was created and then the 2002 series was developed in 1971, fusing the power of the Giant Beat with the differentiation of the Jazz series Formula 602. In the 2000s, Paiste once again makes the 2002 a core series for now and for the future.
The legendary cymbals that defined the sound of generations of drummers since the early days of Rock, the present 2002 is built on the foundation of the original classic cymbals and is expanded by modern sounds for today’s progressive popular music.
