Comments about Paiste 2002 Heavy Ride Cymbal:

wow....that's all i have to say....WOW....the best ride cymbal ...its real heavy sound makes it perfect for jazz to metal....if you are playing a soft kind of song then all you have to do is hit the cymbal softer....its that simple...and if your playing something like metal then you need to hit it really cuts through the rest of the drum kit and its really good to use kinda like a keep time....its very heavy and dark but you can make it a bright sound if you hit it towards the edge or to make it dark, hit it in the middle of he cymbal...what i think is really cool about this cymbal is that you can hit the very top and it sounds like a really heavy bell witch is really nice to use as an accent to your kit...this is defiantly the best ride cymbal i have used in my career and i will always use it....i recommend this cymbal to any kind of drummer out there and it really is not that much money...considering what you get!!!
