Background: During the 1960's developing Beat and Rock music required cymbal sound to match the new frequencies and volume levels and in 1967 the Giant Beat series was created. The 2002 was developed in 1971 fusing the power of the Giant Beat with the differentiation of the Jazz series Formula 602.
