In Stock!

The Original 15" Wavy-bottom Hats

The Paiste 2002 15" Sound Edge hi-hat is the original wavy-bottom hat. With its medium top and medium-heavy wavy bottom, this pair delivers a medium-bright, energetic open sound and a pronounced chick sound.

The Paiste 2002 series

Paiste 2002 series cymbals are crafted using Paiste's proprietary 2002 Alloy. These 2002 cymbals sound full and bright, with strong presence and projection. They have a crisp, focused character, and articulately respond to your stick attack. Above all, 2002 series cymbals are eminently musical. The 2002 Precision series cymbals are made from the same 2002 alloy using a streamlined manufacturing process to give you 2002 sound at a more affordable price.

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 twentieth 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 2002 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!

These cymbals personify master craftsmanship of the finest level, performance at the top, and sound that's unmatched by all other competitors.The stick articulation these cymbals produce is nothing short of ceremonious, and until you experience a high-caliber set of cymbals like these, you haven't played cymbals.Crisp, clean, loud, and cutting! Simply brilliant!

Loud and proud

The 2002 line has some amazing sounds for both live and studio. These hats deliver that extra meat to the rock sound. I tried the 14", but what sold me on these was how well they can cut through thick mixes with ease. Tight chick sound when using the foot, and a wash that can fill a room. I finally found the hats that work for me.
