Paiste 2002 Black Big Beat Cymbals

Yes, drummers, your fragile vintage Ks are absolute perfection when it comes to old-school spang-a-lang, but what about the higher-volume, higher-energy settings that define the genre-blending state of jazz today? This new line of cymbals from Paiste offers welcome updates to the brand’s 2002 line-since ’71 a staple for drummers playing rock, R&B, country and other styles-including a fresh hammering design and semi-matted finish. Cymbals available in 18, 19, 20, 21, 22 and 24-inch singles, and 15 and 16-inch pairs. $436-$465 online paiste.com
