3000

Introduction: 1986(1)
Discontinued: 1995
Background: An extension of the classic 2002 sound, the 3000s were given added strength in the middle to low frequency range, enabling it to compete better with mid-range heavy Rock guitar sounds, especially in 3000 RUDE.(1)
Innovation: Employing a new (at the time) lathing on a B8 alloy.
Alloy: CuSn8 (Also known as "2002 Bronze")
Quality: Professional
Offered as: 3000 Regular Finish - 3000 Reflector
Production: 3000 series cymbals feature a ribbon lathing, also used on Signature cymbals.
Applications: 3000 series cymbals can be used in many applications, from live to studio.
Users: Tommy Lee, Cozy Powell, Tico Torres, Stewart Copeland
Sound: Generally the same brilliance as 2002, but with added lower frequencies, they sound larger and not as clean; very explosive, extreme volume, particularly in 3000 RUDE; 3000 REFLECTOR add a glassy, shimmering quality; these cymbals are generally preferred by Rock and Heavy Metal musicians,and in any situation that requires extreme volume.(1)
