Big Beat cymbals are available in 18", 19",20",21", 22" and 24" singles, and 15" and 16" pairs.The set represents a modernized, yet timeless interpretation of the celebrated 2002 sound.
Visually, the cymbals feature a distinctly new hammering pattern for the 2002 family, a slightly darkened, semi-matted finish and simplified black logos to distinguish the Big Beat set.
In terms of sound, the cymbals are rooted in the world of 2002 Alloy, with its celebrated brilliance, clarity, precision and strength. Big Beat models add particular warmth, depth and complexity to the mix. They are perfect for broad, voluminous sound without being overly aggressive.
The individual cymbals are designed to be multifunctional and work well across the range as both crashes and rides. Despite their sizes, the cymbals feature excellent manageability and well controllable decay. Warm luscious crashes, an airy, defined ping over a wide multi-layered wash, and broad, musical bells are the hallmarks of the Big Beat singles. The Hi-Hat pairs feature a broad stick over a fat, wet open sound and a rich pronounced chick.
With the 2002 Black Big Beat models, Paiste takes the 2002 sound into a new realm, while preserving the legendary 2002 heritage. Live or studio, these cymbals are decidedly multi-musical, well suited for a wide range of applications.
2002s are entirely made by hand in Switzerland using traditional methods that have remained unchanged in over half a century.

This 22“ Crisp Ride was created in collaboration with Ndugu Chancler, whose decades of session work is highly respected worldwide. His recordings include work with Weather Report, Santana, Herbie Hancock, Lionel Richie and one of the most recognizable drum grooves on Michael Jackson’s legendary “Billy Jean”.
The Crisp Ride joins the eclectic series of Artist Inspiration cymbals. In comparison to the „Dark“ cymbals in the Twenty Masters Collection the basic sound color of the Crisp Ride is brighter, while retaining the richness and warmth of the CuSn20 bronze. It is named for the lucent, crispy stick definition over a smooth, controllable wash. The bell sound is clear but discreet and pleasant.
In honor of his mother, Ndugu Chancler named the cymbal „Rosie“, and it carries an illustration of a rose in the artwork below the bell.
The Twenty Masters Collection is an assemblage of exquisite and laboriously hand-manufactured cymbals made of CuSn20 bronze to achieve superior sound ideals in various musical genres. The twelve ride models integrate the experience of the decades in the art of cymbal making with the inspirations of international top drummers
