The legendary cymbals that defined the sound of generations of drummers since the early days of Rock. The present 2002 is built on the foundation of the original classic cymbals and is expanded by modern sounds for today’s progressive popular music.
The 2002 Giga Bell Ride was created by Paiste’s Sound Development Team in accordance with Aquiles’sound and visual ideas. 2002 cymbals are entirely made by hand in Switzerland using traditional methods that have remained unchanged in over half a century.
Looking at the cymbal its hammered bell, which measures close to 8" in diameter, dominates the overall shape. Its black ColorSound coating and white 2002 silk-screen of Aquiles’ recognizable mask and Psychoctopus logo complete the cymbal’s exceptional visual appeal. Utilizing 2002 bronze alloy, this heavy weighted cymbal is hammered similar to the style of the 2002 Heavy Ride. The Giga Bell Ride has a concise, dry and glassy clear ping sound and the large cup produces a quick, cutting, powerful, and dark bell-like sound when played with the shoulder of the stick.Features:
