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.
