The Paiste Ride Cymbal Red Silk is a 20" ride cymbal made with CuSn8 bronze, that is hand hammered, hand lathed, and completed with a red silk screening finish. At the time, the 2002 Series from Paiste was the first series from the traditional Swiss manufacturer with a specially developed cymbal for electronically amplified music. Today's cymbal models are still based on the legendary 2002 cymbal of the 70s. Naturally this extremely popular 2002 Cymbal series has since been further developed and expanded through new models, which hit the nerve of popular rock and pop music of today.
