I play black label 2oo2 Big beats. I've used them for rock, and I also use them in the band I'm in. We do mostly originals, with several different genre styles to our originals. Jazzy, swingy, bluesy, classic rock vibe. They're super versatile cymbals!

I have used 2oo2s for church mixed with other lines. The songs range from old hymns to contemporary worship songs. I have used 13" and 14" medium hats and sometimes 13" and 14" sound edge hats and 16" and 18" thin crashes. I have also used an 18" ride and a 20" flatride too. I love them.

Besides rock, I use them for pop and country (with the country band, I use Giant Beat crashes with 2002 hats and ride). I recorded some EDM tracks with all 2002s, also.

When I was gigging, I used my 2002s for rock, hard rock and pop. I often mixed other lines as well including Signatures and a Zildjian or Paiste Dimensions Ride. For about the last year or so I was playing an all 2002 setup, but I recently swapped out the 2002 Mediums for Sig Full Crashes.

Generally speaking, the 2002s were the sound that made me gravitate toward Paiste to begin with.

I use my 2002’s for classic rock, blues, R&B, funk. On another note, Dan Brubeck used a combination of 2002/Rude’s on an acoustic Jazz gig last time they were in town...go figure.

I once listened to a rockabilly-type band and from the audience, the ride sounded perfectly clicky to my ear and I assumed it was a darker cymbal (just likely heavy). It sat in the mix so well and, for the life of me, I would not have guessed he was using all 2002s. It was a real eye-opener b/c I was so used to hearing cymbals from the drummer's perspective and underestimated the difference between what it sounded like when I was playing it (to me, really bright and pingy) and what it actually sounded like in the room along with the other instruments. It was a great sound that I could see fitting in so many different musical situations.

Never used 2002's for jazz, but have heard other jazz drummers mention their use.
I have used Big Beats (15 hats, 22 and 20" multi) for jazz, and to me, a darker and lighter version of the 2002.

I've yet to find a situation they weren't perfect for.
I may change out my 15 hats for 14 Heavys, if I'm not playing a rock gig, as well as my 24, for a 20, or 22 inch ride.
Even in college, when we only played Jazz, our percussion professor would always have pleanty of 2002's available.

I only have a pair of 2oo2 Heavy 14" Hats rights now in that line. Use them mainly for live shows when I need cut and less overall body in the mix.
