  • Paiste 2002 Ride 20"

    Paiste 2002 Ride 20" - "perfect for DW kit"

    12/01/11

    Our drummer just bought this cymbal, and I am very impressed with it. While it isn't mine, I do practice with my drummer 2-3 times a week in addition to gigs, so at this point I'm really familiar with it, especially since it's being used by a far be…

  • Paiste 2002 Thin China 16''

    Paiste 2002 Thin China 16'' - moosers's review

    07/11/10

    The Paiste 2002 16” Thin China is a colorful cymbal that is a great addition to anyone’s drum set. I’m not a drummer myself, but have played extensively with a drummer who has one of these and who uses it all the time. I’ve heard it used across the…

    Paiste 2002 China 18'' - sanjuro's review

    11/29/09

    As much as I love the Paiste 2002 line, I am not a big fan of their China cymbals.  These have the other admirable 2002 qualities such as durability or uniqueness. However, as chinas they don't sound great.  The alloy sounds similar to that of the Wu…

    Paiste 2002 Ride 20" - sanjuro's review

    11/29/09

    The Paiste 2002 20" Ride is the Paiste cymbal that I have owned the longest.  It was my first ride, so I am pretty partial to it.  It is probably not the best from the line, but it gets the job done.  Unlike many other 2002's, this is definitely the …

  • Paiste 2002 Crash 20"

    Paiste 2002 Crash 20" - sanjuro's review

    11/29/09

    Like the other cymbals in the 2002 line, this is good for rock music.  The 20" crash has truly amazing power.  The 2002's already pack a punch, so supplying 20 inches is almost out of control.  This is actually the only 2002 (reviewed) I have never i…

    Paiste 2002 Crash 16" - sanjuro's review

    11/29/09

    The Paiste 2002 16" crash is an excellent cymbal for rock music.  I think that the crashes in this line are the highlight and are a great deal for their quality.  A few steps down from the signatures, the 2002's still provide professional quality at …

  • Paiste 2002 Deep Full Ride 22''

    Paiste 2002 Deep Full Ride 22'' - goodbyebluesky's review

    04/02/08

    I owned my 2002 22" ride for a few years before sadly parting with it. I had it paired with an 18" crash from the 2002 series, and they were a match made in heaven, though I wished I could have had a 20" crash to fill it out. Paiste ma…

  • Paiste 2002 Crash 18"

    Paiste 2002 Crash 18" - goodbyebluesky's review

    04/02/08

    I owned my Paiste 2002 18" crash for a couple of years before sadly parting with it. I like the lower overtones and the deep wash it gave me, which were mostly due to its 18" size. I started to stray away from smaller crashes and splashes d…

    Paiste 2002 Crash 17" - "Paiste 2002 20" Crash"

    12/08/02

    I bought this at a drum shop used for 140.00. I am in a heavy metal band and needed a good durable cymbal that had alot of sound. I love the classic look of the cymbal. The Hand hammering really reveals itself in the bright shimmering sound it prod…

    Paiste 2002 Novo China 18" - " Surgical cymbal"
    translated

    09/15/14

    This cymbal is simply perfect. A clear sharp and clear sound, it responds very quickly to ramp up with a fairly aggressive but its content remains nonetheless. Manufacturing side have is a fairly robust china but of course does not last long in the r…
