            Comments about Paiste 2002 Power Ride Cymbal:

            I have the 22". Because the Signature Power Ride is no longer made I got this beauty. Its the only ride I've played that has 4 or 5 different voicing/tones from the bell to the shoulder. Very musical. Sometimes I think I'm laying to heavy on it but in the recording it sounds super sweet. I'm all-around impressed. Thanks again, Paiste.

            Still a Big Boy!!!

            Comments about Paiste 2002 Power Ride Cymbal:

            The 2002 22" Power Ride is the King Of Rides!!! I've been playing for 30 yrs. This Ride has never let me down. You have to go easy on the Pee-Wee Herman songs but it sounds great if you know how to play! When you open it up and let it sing, It will fill the room! The cymbal is Beautiful! I played this cymbal in the late 70's and just purchased a brand new one! You can't go wrong with Paiste!!
            Beautiful cymbal with that Great 80's sound that still performs well in todays music!
            Big, Heavy, Large Bell, Great ping for loud music!!!
            I have played Paiste products for 25 years! The Sound and Quality is by far worth the higher price tag!

            2002 Power Ride 20"

            By jtsdrums

            from United States

            Comments about Paiste 2002 Power Ride Cymbal:

            This ride delivers. If you play any type of amplified music that requires clear, precise sound check this one out. I find this model a better overall ride cymbal then any other rock ride I have played.
            If you seek a great sounding rock ride that is also versatile this is it! It has a musical clear stick sound, great bell and pleasing wash.
            As usual Paiste delivers again with a precise work of art. All professional grade Paiste Cymbals are of the highest quality that puts most others to shame.
            It may be pricey but well worth it and then some.

            What a Ride !

            Comments about Paiste 2002 Power Ride Cymbal:

            In a word - WOW ! I searched far and wide for a second ride cymbal. My first ride is an excellent Sabian HH 20" Heavy Ride. I was looking for another solid sounding, pingy type of ride, with a great bell. I tried about everything there is, with no luck, and ended up ordering a Paiste 2002 20" Heavy Ride. I ended up returning it, as it was a bit stiff sounding, and the bell was too small and sharp sounding for my taste. Then I came across this Paiste 2002 22" Power Ride, and that was it. The sound is solid, bright, warm, and very musical. The bell is large, and superb. It is gorgeous to look at as well. I can crash on it, and it handles both light and hard playing with ease. It's the only one I have ever played, however, given Paiste's reputation for consistency, I imagine they are all wonderful. It's a real beast, and just great for rock, but I can jazz it up on this thing as well. My only caution is that this cymbal goes well with powerful sounding drums, and may be too overpowering for a small kit.

            2002 in 2009!

            Comments about Paiste 2002 Power Ride Cymbal:

            I have this ride in 22" I am very pleased with the tone and the large bell. It sounds bright and not dark with my Promark Hickory. I also just purchased the 2002 24" ride. Very similar to this one but a little larger. This one is a keeper though! Can't say enough about Paiste 2002 Cymbals! I have all around my Yamaha Blue Sparkle Fade Absolute Maples Paistes in Diminsion-RUDE-Signature-and I am leaning towards the 2002's!! I guess there are some other Top brands available but I am so pleased with what the metal is saying to my ears so why switch. After about 30 years of Zildjian's Tommy Aldridge switched to Paiste. Bonzo used Paiste...I am just happy where I am at so I will stay put.

            King of Ping

            Comments about Paiste 2002 Power Ride Cymbal:

            I had the 20" PR and it is a fine cymbal but not exactly what I was wanting in a power ride but very close. then I ran across the 22"-PR and that one nailed it for me! Very well defined crystal med hi ping, and of course it has that paiste trademark beautiful transparent shimmering wash. The bell is *very* happening too. Its lower in pitch from the rest of the cymbal, very cutting and separated from the rest of the cymbal sonic properties. Great bell. Even though this is a very heavy pie its also great for light crashing or using the butt end of the stick for accompanying a tear it up rock guitar lead. Cuts through the mix powerfully but gracefully. Its a great rock ride. the paiste sound clips are very accurate on this one or live listen to deep purples ian paice, he's been using this ride for at least the last 10 years or so and in the hands of the master it is amazingly versatile.

            This ride is just about perfect. I love the pingy, high-piched sound that it produces. The ride also has a good volume to it. This ride is probably one of the best rides for rock and metal. If you play these styles 100% get this ride.

            Comments about Paiste 2002 Power Ride Cymbal:

            once again Paiste has nailed it with this one. after playing on a 20" 2oo2 power ride which i really liked it just wasn't what i wanted in a very heavy ride so i sold it and found a good deal on a 20" signature power ride, as much as I love the signature line this was just way too bright. I kept thinking about the 20" 2oo2 i sold and thinking i made a mistake doing so when i ran across the 22" 2oo2 power ride and listened to what Ian Paice was doing with it I went for it! that was it!heavy the sound I've been wanting in a pingy ride since i can remember. somewhat dark, with that clear 2oo2 tone that cuts through anything with the class and style of a thoroughbred and the bell is perfect on it. of all my rides this one gets used the most. if your looking for a ride with the ultimate in ping grab this one
