Paiste 2002 17" Sound Edge Hi-Hat 1555/1615 g
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.
"Paiste patented the wavy-bottom hi-hat design in the 1970s and implemented it in the 2002 Sound Edge hi-hats to give a well-defined and controllable sound a sharp, full foot chick. John Bonham used 15" Sound Edge hi-hats for the majority of his time with Led Zeppelin (he used Giant Beats in the early days with the band), but these classic cymbals are available in a 17" version for an even more massive sound and additional low-end power without the loss of crispness and projection. These hi-hats are firm and hefty, so they require a fairly strong stroke to set them into motion.The open and half-open sound is deep yet shimmery, so it fills out a wide range of frequencies. The closed stick tone is crisp and dense, and it has an interesting low pitch that is reminiscent of a detuned sample of traditional 14" hi-hats. The foot chick is strong and wide, which blends well with full-volume ride grooves and tribal tom patterns. These are big, bold hi-hats for big, bold beats." - Michael Dawson
