The most recognizable of all Paiste cymbal lines, the 2002 series is known for its bright attack, clear projection and strong ties to rock.

With a dry, woody stick sound, dark wash and extremely short decay the 2002 Flat Ride performs well in low to medium volume situations, and can be used as an exotic, punctuated crash.
