Dark to Washy!
AlanC, 13.06.2013
When it comes to cymbal making, Paiste are at the very forefront of making quality cymbals with a distinct sound that's their trademark. They can be heard on countless Rock recordings over the decades and had their most famous Rock endorsee, the legendary John Bonham played their 2002 series cymbals from 1970 onwards. Being a fan of Bonham led me to purchase a cymbal from the 2002 series, a 20" Classic Ride. Bonham played a massive 24" 2002 Ride but i have a fusion kit and was after that similar quality sound heard on many Led Zep recordings. The sound and tone of the cymbal is very pleasing to the ear, it is warm, washy and shimmering and has a loud + clear bell. This is no doubt down to the Hand-Hammering and Lathing that gives Paiste cymbals their Classic sound. Stick definition is clear + pingy and the cymbal has a dark undertone, depending on what part of the cymbal you play + at what force you strike it. I'm very pleased with the purchase for its overall Sound, Tone And Quality and will hopefully be using it on many recordings and rehearsal for years to come!

A True Classic
Radoslaw L., 15.07.2020
There is not much to be said that hasn't been said already. There is a reason the 2002 series has been used for decades by Top class drummers. To me there is no better sound sounding ride out there. It's sweet, crips and little washy. Use it for Funk, Jazz, Heavy Rock. It cuts through fabulously.
Paiste 2002 proves again and again the excellence and pureness in sound and build quality. Worth every penny.

Polyvalente !
Rstar316, 27.07.2011
J'ai essayé cette Ride la première fois dans un magasin, et j'ai craqué pour la finesse du son. Ce qui est paradoxal, car je joue principalement du gros Rock. Et justement, contrairement à certaines Ride, lorsqu'on la martèle tout le long d'un riff, le son s'amplifie progressivement, ce qui évite qu'elle "gicle" et passe devant tous les autres instruments systématiquement.

Elle sait aussi se faire très précise lorsqu'elle simplement est caressée, et ces harmoniques sont très agréables.

Côté robustesse, rien à redire, vous êtes dans le haut de gamme Paiste, je la possède depuis 3 ans, et pas un seul signe de fatigue.

Le seul petit reproche que je pusse faire, c'est que la cloche a du mal à se démarquer du reste du son de la cymbale, à part ça, vous pouvez l'acheter les yeux fermés.

El sonido que buscaba
03.04.2014
Ya tenía un paiste 2002 de crash, y los platos de ride que había probado no acababan de gustarme. Con este he encontrado el sonido laaaargooo y cálido que identifico en los discos de los grupos de los 80. El sonido de la campana tiene un timbre y unos armónicos que diferenciarán tus grabaciones.
En el blues y jazz arroparás a todo el grupo, y en rock puedes estar por encima cuando quieras.
La fabricación es como todos los paiste; excelente. Un material de la mejor calidad y un acabado perfecto, que por ser de tan gran tama?o se hace más notable.
