The 2002 Big Ride is based on the design parameters and character of the Giant Beat series. The finish is vintage 2002 style. The cymbal features a full, silky, powerful, deep sound character, and a sweet, glassy ping over a big, dark and misty wash, making it a versatile Ride cymbal with great crash-ability, a perfect addition to Alex Van Halen's very own big signature cymbal sound.

As a tribute to Alex's collaborative effort in the creation of this unique cymbal, the label "Reverend Al's Big Ride" and a modified rendition of the principal "exterminator" artwork for Van Halen's 1984 tour have been placed on the cymbal.

2002 cymbals are entirely made by hand in Switzerland using traditional methods that have remained unchanged in over half a century.

In 1901, Michail Paiste began a publishing business/music store in Russia, and then made cymbals in Estonia. Today, new sounds are continually created with cymbals, gongs, and bronze instruments according to the creative needs of drummers and percussionists.
