Nice way to add color to your set's tone. From the line developed in the early 70s specifically for amplified music.

The Paiste 2002 Accent Cymbal sounds bright, brilliant, and warm. Narrow range, clean mix. Very responsive feel. Slightly shattering, explosive attack with warm, mellow bell-like fade. Features an exotic feeling, very dominant center tone with soft, swirling over- and undertones. In addition to use as accent cymbals, you could mount it upside down over a ride bell. A pair could also be used as very unusual mini hats.

Introduction: 1971

Background: During the 1960's developing Beat and Rock music required cymbal sound to match the new frequencies and volume levels and in 1967 the Giant Beat series was created - The 2002 was developed in 1971 fusing the power of the Giant Beat with the differentiation of the Jazz series Formula 602 - In 2005, Paiste once again makes the 2002 a core series for the future, as the best and most innovative Dimensions models are incorporated into the newly expanded 2002, adding current trend cymbal sound to this venerable line
