Paiste 2002 Psychoctopus Giga Bell Ride Cymbal 18"

Free shipping

Shane Says

“The Paiste 2002 Cymbals are the industry standard for Rock cymbals as far as I am concerned. One listen to any Led Zeppelin or Van Halen album just solidifies that. Crispy, cutting highs, and excellent stick attack. It's hard for me to imagine a world without 2002's.“

Product Description

At first glance, this 18" Paiste 2002 Giga Bell Ride Cymbal might seem odd. An 18" ride cymbal with a mammoth bell is certainly unusual. Once you have it set up on a stand and start playing it, you immediately get it. It has a dry ping and throaty bell tone that is perfect for articulate metal and progressive cymbal work. It has a surprisingly usable crash, and will absolutely inspire you to take your playing to new territory. Aquiles Priester is an absolute beast behind the kit, and so is his signature 2002 ride cymbal. Check it out at Drum Center of Portsmouth.

  • Very bright, glassy, slightly dry, cutting, metallic
  • Fairly narrow range, clean mix
  • Somewhat heavy, but controllable feel
  • Clear, glassy ping over bell-like wash
  • Extremely cutting, loud bell with dark undertone
