I treated myself to a 24" Ride. I was lucky enough to find one used so I didn't have to spend THAT much. The cymbal is a beast and I look forward to every opportunity I have to take it for a spin. The bell has a nice tone to it and the wash is very smooth considering the size of the cymbal. You can not go wrong with this line of cymbals made by Paiste!
I have the 20" Ride after selling a AAX 21" raw bell ride, needing a new one. Paiste knows how to make cymbals! Amazing bell, cuts through ANYTHING despite its small size. The bow is very clean, crisp, and won't over-ring and ruin the sound. A perfect balance, and gives just enough to rock hard, or even play lightly Perfect for all styles of music. This ride is definitely a keeper (until it breaks of course) Then I'll buy a new one! A 20" 2002 Ride will ALWAYS be in my setup.
plain and simple this ride is the best. it has a very warm and bright attack and very great resonance the bell is the same as well. its all around the best ride cymbal out there, and its great from playing metal to rock to jazz or anything else this ride has it all.
I was given the paiste 2002 ride a couple of years ago from my uncle who toured with it for about ten to thirteen years and then gaave it to me and now i tour with it and its just an all around great ride. you need this ride to make your set complete.
I was a skinny little freshman when I bought this used cymbal w/ my first drumset.... The sound of this cymbal rippin' through the pep band & drivin' the jazz band through my high school years is one of my fondest memories. My only regret is selling it to help pay for college. Believe me, I'm saving up for a new one!
I bought this ride at a Blowout price because it was baddly tarnished. Of course it didnt even effect the sound of the cymbal, the ride is perfect for all music from Big Band swing to a slow ballad. but for sure. CuSn8 bronze is HARD to keep clean once its tarnished.
Well, what can you say about it... It just works! The sound is bright and strong, works very well in every kind of music, especially heavy and rock. You can hear even the slightest touch. 20" is well enough, it shouldn't be any bigger!
If you play classic or hard rock, this is DEFINETLY the cymbal for you! This ride is great for most other styles, too, but it compliments rock SO well! I own the darker 22". A Paiste Innovatons Medium Crash (16") compliments the 22" perfectly. I have rarely heard a better cymbal comonation. Great dark yet warm shimmering tones. The bell is awesome for accents! A louder version of the cymbal. This ride can even be crashed fairly well! Buy it!!
First of all I want to say that the Paiste 2002 series doesn't have a bad cymbal in it. But, This ride sounds extremely awesome. It performs really well. I don't know about you, but I like the sound of the BIG ride. I like the 24" ride. It's sound is so unmistakable and perfect. This huge ride won't leave you wanting more. This ride can cut through anything. Even in the middle of me just pounding on the drums once I strike this ride, you can still hear it just as clean as any other time. It won't be a waste of money. I know it's a little expensive, but well worth the money spent. If you want a ride that is unique and can stand out like no other, you have to get the Paiste 2002 series ride. It doesn't matter what size, just get one of them. (Preferablly the 24" though.) They Are Awesome!!!!!!!!
