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 Giga Bell Ride "Psychoctopus"
Very bright, glassy, slightly dry, cutting, metallic.
Fairly narrow range, clean mix.
Somewhat heavy, but controllable feel.
Clear, glassy ping over bell-like wash.
Extremely cutting, loud bell with dark undertone.
Extraordinary ride, suited particularly for defined playing on the bell in various musical styles.
Developed in co-operation with Brazilian's Top Heavy Metal drummer Aquiles Priester.
"This is a great specialty ride. It cuts well, and the huge bell is awesome! It offers a sound that few other rides offer. It's not for everyone. It's made for loud rock music, as in Heavy Metal. This cymbal will be a good weapon for war in your sound arsenal." - Cat Fan
"I'm in a touring hardcore band and this bell just sounds nasty and cuts super well. I was worried the pitch would be too low but I think the fact that the ride is 18" helps it sit in the right frequency range for me. I don"t use this ride for anything except the bell but I'll say that the ping is also amazing for just riding the cymbal of that/s what you'll be using it for." - Brandon Stuck
