      OVERVIEW

      Check out the wave and get ready to rave!

      A classic. The unique rippled bottom prevents air lock, giving an overall sharp "chick" and splashy open sound. Very clear projection.

      Made with CuSn8 bronze for a bright, cutting, and energetic tone. Great for live and studio gigs requiring high energy and the utmost in precision and musicality. Heavier models have been added to round out the original classic series by providing increased volume.

      I recently got a new pair of these 15" hats. I have always played 14" New Beats, only, up until now. When I first set these up, I had a peculiar unease about the sound, but they quickly grew on me, and within seconds, I was really digging the new sound. They have a very cripy sound, overall, and lots of cut. The chick sound is quite sharp and not so airy or whispy. The open sound is quite sizzly. They are quite quick for 15" hats. Depending on the type of music you play, I might not recommend these as the most versatile, all-round pair for everything, but if you are going for an agressive sound with lots of attack, you might love these above all others. Highly recommended !

      These are without a doubt, the best high-hat cymbals I've "heard." BUT I have been through two sets since buying my first set not quite a year ago. I don't know if it's the empty space created by the waves in the edge or what, but I've had to go back to my color-sounds because they keep cracking top & bottom cymbal. I guess if you have an endorsement, they're great, because they do sound sweet. I just can't afford to replace any more.

          Comments about Paiste 2002 Sound Edge Hi-Hats:

          I have played zildjians for a long time , being the factory is next town over. However the sound I love I could never get. I stopped and looked at the cymbals my fav drummers use. All!! of them use paiste!! niko, alex van halen, stewert copland, mullen jr, Bonham! moon, So I went to my drum shop with all my zildjians, and turned them in and bought paiste! Over a year ago, still awesome as ever! the se hi hats, can not say enough! I don't know why other guys chip or crack? I abuse the things and nothing just great awesome sound! all the 2002 line is awesome! the only thing that isn't paiste in my set is a sabian 10" chopper. the rest is all 2002 line! best cymbals I ever had, and will only use!

          These hats are exquisite. I had a set a long time ago and I should never have let them go.
          I have a second set and I love them. They cut through everthing, they are responsive, and depending on a person's attack I can get plenty of sound from these lovely hats.

          Awesome Hi-Hats

          By 

          from South Pittsburgh, Pa.

          Comments about Paiste 2002 Sound Edge Hi-Hats:

          Just received my 15" 2002 Sound edge hi-hats today. Couldn't get them out of the box fast enough. First off the finish on the 2002 series cymbals is gleaming. I bought these to replace my old 2002 Heavy Rock Hi-hats that I had tons of miles on. (still in good shape). All I can say is awesome and exactly what I wanted and expected from Paiste

          Great sound! Just great quality hats. The wavy bottom really brings out the sizzle in these big boys. Started with Paiste and never looked back since. Don't know how you can break multiple pairs of hats, could be bad luck, or maybe Technique?;)My Paistes have never let me down. Fixin to get me a pair of 15" Soundedge here @ Musicians Friend, really dig the service!

          Great cymbal...not real durable for me

          Comments about Paiste 2002 Sound Edge Hi-Hats:

          These are probably the best hi-hats I've ever heard. I have owned several pairs. Unfortunately I have come to the point where I am going away from the Soundedge. I will stick with the 2002 series since there are none better, but will be switching to the heavy hats. As I said, I have cracked up several sets of these....both top and bottom hats, so it's just not reasonable to stay with them for me. Guessing they sell just the top hat alone for a reason.?.? Anyways, a great cymbal I would suggest to anyone

          Comments about Paiste 2002 Sound Edge Hi-Hats:

          These hats can get LOUD really quick. I can't say enough about them. I've been playing 15" Sabian Sizzle hats the past 20 years, I thought I would play Sabian the rest of my life. Then I found my ears really liking the sound I was hearing from some of the concerts I had been to. What did they all have in common? Paiste! I replaced my whole setup with 2002s, with the exception of my sweet sounding 18" Giant Beat. Back to these hats, they will literally force you out of any bad habits because even through the wash you still hear defined stick work. I've had them for 2 weeks now and I've cleaned up my technique. I know everyone has loyalties to certain equipment but after hearing and playing these I couldn't resist making the change!

          Comments about Paiste 2002 Sound Edge Hi-Hats:

          These hats are LOUD! Great for Rock or even heavy rock/metal. (In fact I think the drummer from G.W.A.R uses 2002's) They really are top notch quality when it comes to cymbals. These have a nice sharp crisp when closed, but have a loud, washy yet controlled sound when half opened. Right now I have these hats and a 2002 16" Crash. I plan on filling out the rest of my set with 2002's because they really are the best!
