Ho trovato questo piatto davvero fantastico, praticamente multifunzionale in quanto si può usare tranquillamente come ride. Suono incredibile e versatile, con un attacco scuro che termina con risonanze che riendono verso le alte frequenze. Il risultato è uno strumento armonicamente eccellente e che anche in fase di mix aiuta molto il lavoro in studio. Una delizia da suonare e da guardare. Retro ma allo stesso tempo modernissimo.

Bernhard2, 10.11.2014
einfach schön. Nach langem Hin und Her habe ich mich entschieden, einmal kurz von meiner geliebten 2002er-Serie abzuweichen.

Dieses Becken ist relativ dünn und scheint mir ein wenig lackiert zu sein. Das Loch hatte eine scharfe Gratung, diese habe ich vor dem ersten Einsatz entschärft. Schönes Finish, schönes Logo. Erinnert natürlich an Ian Paice und John Bonham.

Eine sehr schnelle Ansprache verein sich hier mit einem breit gefächerten Frequenzspektrum. Für Ride-Patterns ist es mir aber zu dünn, hier habe ich eben mein Ride.
Für große Lautstärken bzw. auf großen Bühnen stößt man hier an seine Grenzen. Ich hatte den direkten Vergleich zum 18" 2002 PowerCrash und zum 18" 2002 ThinCrash. Für leise und mittlere Passagen der ideale Partner des 18" Thin. Hier klingt es schön breit und mächtig, ohne überlaut zu sein. In lauten Situationen jedoch (70er-Rock-Schluß, fettes Doppelgitarren-Geschruppe etc.) wird es irgendwann zu dünn. Dafür habe ich dann etwas anderes.

Es ist eben das 60er, 70er-Jahre-Feeling, das dieses Becken ausmacht. Keine Supersondermodelle für jede noch so kleine Nische, sondern one for all. Man lernt hier, seine Spieldisziplin zu entwickeln.

Ich freue mich jedenfalls darauf, noch viele Dinge in vielen verschiedenen Situationen damit auszuprobieren. Und das 24" Ride muss ich auch noch genauer beobachten.

Dr Brian , 23.05.2015
I recently bought the Paiste 2002 classic 18" crash cymbal after shopping around. I needed something that was durable, not too bright but could cut through a band or orchestra. Given that I required a crash cymbal that was versatile enough for a variety of environments I wanted to expand my horizons when it came to choice. Having listened and auditioned many cymbals on Thomann's excellent web site I decided to try Paiste, after all, if they're good enough for Jeff Porcaro, Right!!!!
I was not disappointed. The first outing for my new 18" crash was on a performance of Hairspray the musical in a 1,200 seat theatre. The feel from the pit was so good. When I needed a big sound with sustain that punctuated without overpowering the vocals, it was there. The rich tone it has, sounded so right within the band giving an extra layer to the overall balance. The feedback from the sound engineer and other musicians who were front of house was very positive. The next setting was with an ABBA tribute show, smaller venue and working with a 4 piece band, vocals and tracks. This work for me is all about creating the sonic feel of the original recordings so i'm quite particular with my choice of cymbals and drums. Again, I was so impressed with Paiste - attack and sustain were just enough and the overall timbre blended seamlessly with the music. My next test for the '2002 Classic' will be with Broadway and West End star Rachel Tucker in July. Again, a different ensemble line up and performance demands will be required. However, I am confident the Paiste 2002 Classic 18" Crash cymbal will come 'Crashing Through' for me. Watch This Space!!!!

Wall of sound.

This crash cymbal is perfect for crash-riding to make that powerful "wall of sound". It has smaller bell size than the Power or the standard 2002 crashes, thus it will produce more wash while crash-riding than the other 2002 crashes.

I`d recommend this cymbal for rock and metal players, due to its weight and loudness

Daniel6951, 30.12.2015
If you are looking for power, medium sustain and brilliant wash, look no further. This paiste 2002 Classic 18" Power Crash delivers all that you want. I myself use it for my Electronic pop band which gives me the power when I need it but there is also enough control for quieter songs. When it comes to my Country Rock band it is a great cymbal for chorus's and crashing on the one. When it comes to my psychedelic rock band it is awesome, like I joined the band a while ago and it just brought so much power and beef to the music. When the song needs to get heavier or needs a lift I have that to go to put as I said above still has a great dynamic range. I have used a few times recording now and it just hits you hard and is epic.
If you like heavy music, play heavy or play all types of music but want a cymbal to call on to lift the song look no further.
