$400.00!! Wow! That is how much a new pair of Paiste 2002 14" Heavy will set you back.

FOR GOD'S SAKE WHY NOT GET THE VINTAGE BLACK LABEL 2002s AND ACTUALLY SAVE MONEY DOING IT?!

AND THE BOTTOM CYMBAL BACK WHEN PAISTE STAMPED THEM "ROCK"!!!

From what I recall Paiste only did this for a few years at the end of the 70s and beginning of the 80s.

And that is helpful, I mean what if you pulled out these hihats for your POLKA gig? Then what?

Where would you be trying to play Frank Yankovic's "In Heaven There is No Beer" or "The Doghouse Polka" with a pair of inappropriate  hihats. 

In Hell. That's where you would be.

But thankfully Paiste alleviated that catastrophe.

Offered up for your pleasure is one lovely pair of VINTAGE Paiste Black Label 2002 Sound Edge / Heavy ROCK 14" Hihats that are in EXCELLENT Condition. Check out the pictures! Remarkably there are

NO

nicks, cracks, dents, or dings on these nearly 4 decade old Black Labels. They are in GREAT SHAPE with an amazing patina that has befriended them over the years and helps dry and smooth them out!  

As you can see the top cymbal is a 1976 2002 Black Label Sound Edge while the bottom is a 1978 2002 Black Label Heavy Rock.

And dammit do these 2002s sound amazing. I mean REALLY amazing!! A pinch of a New Beat vibe but on 2002s!!

Weighing in at a confident 972 grams for the top cymbal and 1042 grams for the bottom cymbal, these hihats have all of the Classic Bright, Clean Paiste tone that catapulted the 2002 Series to stardom 45 years ago.

What I dig about this specific pair is that they are very focused when struck with your stick. The articulation is great and it's a bit more controlled thanks to the lovely patina.

AND you won't be mislead into using them on your acoustic folk gig, because they're stamped "ROCK."

Obviously these Vintage Paiste 2002 Black Label Hihats are Perfect for Rock, pop, funk, fusion, punk, reggae, R&B, hip-hop, loops and samples, heavier styles and ANYTIME you need that Bright, Clean Classic 2002 Tone with strog projection.

BUT don't use them for polka or folk You'll burn in hell for that.

And speaking of hell, why the HELL would you pay four hundred dollars for a new pair of 2002s?!!!

WHY oh WHY?

This pair has DECADES of life left in them. And hell they sound better than the new ones anyway. VERY CRISP! 

So do yourself a favor and grab these Vintage Paiste Black Label 2002 14" Combo Hihats.

And navigate the afterlife with confidence.
