The most recognizable of all Paiste cymbal lines, the 2002 series is known for its bright attack, clear projection and strong ties to rock. It is also Paiste's longest-running series, with some models in continuous production since 1971.

Bright, warm, and fairly sensitive, the 2002 14" Medium Hi-Hats are well-suited to just about any playing situation. The "chick" is crisp and blended, and the stick sound is clean, smooth and defined.

Composition: CuSn8, "2002" Bronze (92% copper, 8% tin, traces of silver)
