Review: Terrific ride! Has a nice ping over a warm wash, and I was not at all disappointed in this. May not be the "dry" ride if you like it really dry, this is actually not so dry at all. (I think this has something to do with it being unlathed, like a RUDE.) I use it often in an 1980's metal cover band when we play smaller rooms. It is great for blending into the music, although it is actually nice when crash/riding too! I've had several nice comments about the copper like look of the finish. It took me two years to find this, but when I did it was well worth the wait.

Review: Wow what a great ride! Its got a nice clear strong ping, great bell, and has that great 2002 sound. It's weighted perfectly and will even crash which is rare for a dry ride. This will be right at home from jazz to metal. I give it a 9.5/10. I think I found my dream ride! The 2002 Dry is a bit lighter than the Signature Dry Heavy Ride, it sounds brighter to me and a lot drier. The amount of hammering on this thing is amazing, top and bottom, looks like a polished shiny penny haha. The bell is nice and pingy and I agree with Paiste saying it has a "throaty" sound. Its not a really loud cymbal, but loud enough for me to cut through my band at full volume without problems. It's much more dynamic than the aforementioned Dry Heavy too. It will crash, it will carry a nice wash, and it will ping depending on the strike zone.
