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 Heavy Ride
Bright, full, warm, energetic.
Fairly wide range, clean mix.
Fairly heavy feel. Strong, defined ping over, full, warm, slightly dark wash.
Well suited for louder playing.
"This is one of my all-time favorite rides. It has a warm shimmer, and nice stick definition. I once had a current 2002 22" Power Ride that I did a side by side comparison with, as they were roughly the same weights. To me, the Power Ride seemed a bit harsh in comparison to the warmth of the Heavy Ride. The Power Ride did have more definition though. I have used this ride in a Rock band, as well as another band that played a plethora of material, from Elton John to the Rolling Stones, and Adele. I think it handled the job very well." - Stranjluv
"I was looking for the classic rock cymbal with a very defined and penetrating sound that cuts on the volume of amplified guitars and bass. The cymbal has a perfect finish like the whole 2002 series, it is quite heavy, the ride sound is very nice and the crash is powerful and with a gong-like tone, a bit oriental, but also very pleasant. If you want to get an idea of the sound of this cymbal, listen to the first Scorpions albums with Herman Rarebell on drums, it's the ride he uses." - Roman
