This is the sound of rock. Introduced in 1971, Paiste's 2002 series cymbals defined the sound of classic rock. Paiste has continued to develop the line, and today these cymbals are heard in virtually every flavor of electric music. Made with CuSn8 Bronze (aka 2002 Bronze), 2002 cymbals are very versatile and work great in a wide variety of musical settings, including classic rock, blues, punk, hard rock, heavy and progressive metal, fusion, country rock, ska, rockabilly, funk, R&B, soul, and gospel. The sound is brilliant and clear, warm and strong, with powerful projection.
