92% copper, 8% tin. A simple bronze alloy that helped shape the sound of rock music beginning in the early 70's. Paiste’s legendary 2002 bronze alloy has been the industry standard among professionals for nearly half a century. Their sound is a complex, yet unmistakable blend of brightness, warmth and clarity with lively shimmer. Ride cymbals in the 2002 line feature good stick articulation with just the right amount of wash and a clear, cutting bell. Crash cymbals are deep and explosive, and the revolutionary 2002 Sound Edge Hi-Hats are widely considered to be among the best in the business. We love the tone of the 2002 Paiste cymbal line at Drum Center of Portsmouth.
