Paiste 2002 Big Beat cymbals represent a modernized, yet timeless interpretation of the celebrated 2002 sound.
Visually, the cymbals feature a distinctly new hammering pattern for the 2002 family, a slightly darkened, semi-matted finish and simplified black logos to distinguish the Big Beat set.
In terms of sound, the cymbals are rooted in the world of 2002 Alloy, with its celebrated brilliance, clarity, precision and strength. Big Beat models add particular warmth, depth and complexity to the mix. They are perfect for broad, voluminous sound without being overly aggressive. Live or studio, these cymbals are decidedly multi-musical, well suited for a wide range of applications.
2002s are entirely made by hand in Switzerland using traditional methods that have remained unchanged in over half a century.
Sound Character: Warm, deep, brilliant, lush. Medium wide range, complex mix. Responsive, giving feel. Warm luscious crashes with swift fade. Airy, defined ping over wide multi-layered wash. Broad, musical, integrated bells. Multifunctional design to work well as both crashes and rides in medium low to loud settings.
