2002 Series Cymbals

The Paiste 2002 Series is legendary. Originally introduced in 1971, these cymbals have defined the sound of generations of drummers from the early days of rock to the present day. The current 2002 range is built on the foundation of the original classic cymbals and has been expanded to include more modern sounds in keeping with today’s progressive popular music.

Utilising a CuSn8 base bronze, now known as the “2002 Bronze”, this cymbal range offers a brilliant, strong sound with a great blend of clarity and warmth. Extremely musical, the 2002 cymbals have a very precise sound with lots of energy and a powerfully reliable projection.

Super versatile, Paiste 2002 cymbals are ideal for both live performance and studio recording. Suited to a wide range of music genres the 2002 range is suited to classic rock, blues, punk, hard rock, heavy metal, country, ska, funk, RnB, soul, gospel, pop, and many more.

Consisting of a variety of cymbals from crashes and rides to hats, splashes and bells, the 2002 Series is built on tradition with a modern feel to ensure it continues to be the first choice of many drummers for years to come.
