  • No need to spend $400 on a stock photo Paiste 2002 22” Power Ride that you can’t even hear what it sounds like! 

  • That sucks!  And hardly anyone even has a 22” in stock.  You’ll see the 20”, but not the 22”. 

  • But I’m here to help the beleaguered drummer from the suffering online stock photo buying. 

  • Have a listen to this exact PAISTE so you buy with confidence.  

  • Paiste 2002 Power Ride in the generous-sized 22” with a bell as majestic as Mt Fuji! 

  • Paiste describes this cymbal as:

  • "Bright, full, clean, energetic, strong. Fairly narrow range, fairly clean mix. Heavy response, controllable fe clean, glassy ping over a dry, dark and bell-like wash. The classic power ride sound for mainly Rock and Me applications."

  • It reads like Wordsworth! 

  • The Big 2002s are hands down my favorite of the series because they possess a slightly darker tone. This balances the series out a bit. They're still 2002s and they still cut supremely, however the larger ones just seem to be a bit more balanced/musical to me. And this 22” is no exception. Obviously it's not Paste Traditional dark, but it a hint of darkness - and that’s a great thing on a 22”. 

  • Weighing in at a robust 3545 grams, this Paste delivers a fantastic, Classic 2002 penetrating PING tone. The stick definition is beefed up beautifully, and being a Power Ride, the bell cuts supremely and projects straight to the back wall. 

  • The tone of the bell is separated and delivers that clean, crisp 2002 "DING." It’s the tone that Paiste is famous for - cutting, clear separated bell. 

  • Right under the bell you get a great, fairly focused stick attack. And as you migrate out to perimeter of this 222” and start crashing, it really opens up to unleash a wall of white noise.  

  • No issues.  Extremely CLEAN. A beautiful 22” that cuts easily through the din of multiple guitars.  

  • Don’t spend $400 for a search and a guess.
