The Paiste 2002 Wild Crush Ride Cymbal is perfectly suited for contemporary rock and metal. It produces a crushing sound with an aggressive mid-range attack and a dark, controlled, steady, crash-like wash. The Wild Ride plays with a relatively soft feel, it's extremely responsive and giving. This cymbal performs best when played with the stick shaft on the outer third of the surface. This is the cymbal for a sound that's aggressive, lively, wild, foaming, roaring, and washy.
Wide sonic range with a complex mix.
- Weight: medium thin
- Volume: low to very loud
- Stick sound: very crisp, metallic, shattering
- Intensity: lively
- Sustain: medium long
Sound that won't be denied. Get your Wild Crush Ride today!

Comments about Paiste 2002 Wild Crush Ride Cymbal:
Okay, this thing is nice. Its not perfect, but very nice, and that goes with the fact that im very picky, but its still a great buy. I bought this about a year and a half, maybe 2 years ago and as my first "professional" cymbal, i was very happy with it. I bought the 17" on another websiteand it was a bit darker than my other cymbals, but it still holds a nice crisp tone that can be defined as wild.Ive gone back to sheet cymbals simply because theyre cheeper and im too busy buying other parts for my set, and i also have a hard hitting style, which cracks my cymbals in a year, so i buy often. This cymbal still holds a good spot in my set, used as a good contrasting sound, which blows my ears in when im not wearing plugs or muffs. Overall, its great and when it cracks im buying a new one, perhaps a 16" for a bit more explosion.
