During the 1960’s the developing Beat and Rock music required a cymbal sound to match the new frequencies and volume levels and consequently in 1967 the Giant Beat series was created as response to this demand. The 2002 was developed 1971 fusing the power of the Giant Beat with the differentiation of the Jazz series Formula 602.
In 2005, Paiste once again makes the 2002 a core series for the future, including the best and most innovative Dimensions models into the newly expanded 2002, thus adding current trend cymbal sound to this venerable line. In the year 2007, the line is further expanded in to the loud genres by adding larger cymbals and the more aggressive “Wild” models.
