The legendary cymbals that defined the sound of generations of drummers since the early days of Rock. The present 2002 is built on the foundation of the original classic cymbals and is expanded by modern sounds for today’s progressive popular music.
2002 Big Ride "Reverend Al's"
Full, silky, powerful, deep. F
airly wide range, fairly complex mix.
Responsive, soft feel with powerful attributes.
Somewhat papery stick sound with a glassy undertone over fairly dark and cloudy wash.
Very versatile ride cymbal with good crash-ability for classic rock music applications.
Developed in co-operation with the legendary "Van Halen" drummer Alex Van Halen.
"Since I'm a big fan of John Bonham, Cozy Powell, Alex Van Halen and liked their sound with this particular ride, I was able to get their classic sound with ease as well as put my own stamp on it and get my own sound. I have to play with other musicians with a lot of amplification and volume,and this cymbal cuts with plenty of sustain and full bodied tone. It crashes very well if desired." - S. E.
"This ride is amazing, it responds to every nuance you play. It's dynamics is pure class. The 2002 Big Ride is everything the Giant Beat 24 in is but better. The bell is sweet, the riding makes the sticks you use come to life and it's wash or crashing is pure magic. This ride will give you a clear idea whether your drumsticks are up to its standard. Every show or recording I do the sound engineer's can't help telling me how great they sound out front. My fellow drumming buddies constantly tell me how massive and dynamic it sounds." - Oz Bonzo
