Super-versatile 24" Ride

The Paiste 24" 2002 Ride is a versatile general-purpose ride cymbal that's particularly at home in classic rock settings. The sound is warm, full, lively, and brilliant, with a balanced feel and medium sustain.

The Paiste 2002 series

This is the sound of rock. Introduced in 1971, Paiste's 2002 series cymbals defined the sound of classic rock. Paiste has continued to develop the line, and today these cymbals are heard in virtually every flavor of electric music. Made with CuSn8 Bronze (aka 2002 Bronze), 2002 cymbals are very versatile and work great in a wide variety of musical settings, including classic rock, blues, punk, hard rock, heavy and progressive metal, fusion, country rock, ska, rockabilly, funk, R&B, soul, and gospel. The sound is brilliant and clear, warm and strong, with powerful projection.

Paiste - a tradition of innovation

Headquartered in Switzerland, Paiste meets the creative needs of drummers and percussionists with innovative cymbals, gongs, and bronze percussion instruments. Founded at the beginning of the 20th Century, Paiste lays claim to a number of cymbal firsts, including the first use of 8% bronze, the wavy-edged hi-hat bottom cymbal, the bell-less flat ride, unlathed hammered cymbals, color-coated cymbals, China cymbals with a downturned edge, and the invention of their Signature Bronze Alloy. World-class drummers such as Bill Bruford, Stewart Copeland, and Vinnie Colaiuta have long relied on Paiste cymbals to forge their signature sounds - and you can, too!

Awesome does not do it justice!

I always wanted a 24" and I thought that this was the same model that John Bonham played (but he played a 24" Giant Beat). More out of fondness for the sound that Sir Bonham generated, I ordered one of these 2002 24" Rides, but like I said, I got the same size, same brand, but missed the model. Thats OK, because this beast sings like an angel from heaven! I'm not hip to all of the new drum terms (or old terms for that matter), as I didn't play for 20 years, but if I could go back to the 80s, I would take this ride with me. I play in a Christian Rock band (we play loud) and this ride is able to cut through the distortion and crazy-loud riffs that my band mates play. It has a lot of wash, but it's not an undesirable wash, and is easily covered up by the string section. It has a bell that makes me want to write a song about it. Ping perfection! It has a great big sound because it is a great big cymbal (barely fits into my cymbal bag). If you play rock from the 70s or 80s this is the ride for you, unless you like the dark sound. It looks great too! If you play drums in a rock band you can't go wrong buying this ride. Go ahead and get it because you know you want to!
