Paiste's Description: <<< - >>>
Review: Very versatile and quite sensitive - it is warm and mellow played softly and warm and cutting when whacked. it is the traditional rock sound, no doubt about it. it opens up quite quickly for it's size and the fade is warm - less "shimmery" than the Sigs. it is a lovely crash for most settings and can be a very nice low / medium volume washy ride.

Review: Can be crashed and used as a crash/ride, à la Alex Van Halen or Travis Barker. Beautiful shimmer, like all 2002 Crashes. Its size makes it the perfect border between large crashes and small rides. Can blend with just about any model of crash well. I am currently placing this next to my ride cymbal for BIG crashes.

Review: The 2002 crashes are very bright sounding (in Paiste vocabulary). The 19" crash a classic rock crash which blends well with other cymbals but can deliver the cut and bite when needed. To use it as a ride might not be the best idea due to its small and integrated bell and washy overtones. Sometimes you might feel it lacks body, especially when in extremely loud settings.
