Paiste comes crashing through!

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!!!!

A good sound, a little vintage

Günther Crash, 23.05.2011
I was looking for a cymbal to be rather serious, not very explosive, but very powerful, and I discovered the 2002 range of Paiste. Already, it is one of the most varied ranges, everyone can find his happiness. After a test in store, the sound reminded me a lot of the big cymbal Lars Ulrich during the 80's.

I took Classic, not too much artifice or modification, standard, and I discovered a serious sound, powerful, with a good projection, sustain neither too long nor too short, that we can easily stop by hand, it's also a good cymbal for slugger, it goes well in the same Rock style Metal, a good blow of crash to awaken the public.

Conclusion: In addition to being able to be completed with many cymbals of the same range, the 18 "Classic Crash is a good vintage cymbal I think, but I do not recommend it to those looking for a strong explosion, or a very short sustain.
