The PAISTE 2002 Series 20” Crash Cymbal is the crash cymbal to go to when you need to make a powerful statement!
One of the legendary line cymbals that defined the sound of generations of drummers since the early days of Rock and re-created to give you the definitive classic rock crash sound, the PAISTE 2002 Series 20” Medium Crash Cymbal is a large and dramatic crash cymbal that is also a versatile, all-purpose crash ride.
During the 1960s, the 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.
The 2002 Medium line of cymbals is actually a medium heavy cymbal (relatively) and is one weight class heavier than the “standard” original 2002 line. The sound character is bright, rich, warm and full with a wide range, a clean mix and an even, responsive feel. A multi-purpose cymbal with an excellent full-bodied crash and ride functionality as well.
