2002's went into production in 1971, year I was born, so we will both be celebrating a milestone next year.... I know 6 months away still but I wonder if they'll do something special? I don't follow Paiste much, but always have liked the sound out front when I hear another drummer using 2002's. Does Paiste get into doing special editions like Zildjian likes to do?

First ... Happy day!

Second ... Man, I sure hope they do something wild and unexpected. I love the idea of celebrating a cymbal line that's been around that long and has made such an impact on our chosen instrument.

I don't currently play 2002 ... I have in the past.

I plan on snagging a full set very very soon, though.

I'm sure they will, I've been a paiste player from day one, started on 602's and 2002's I have everyone I've bought new many many many years ago.

What's even cooler is the Paiste contract Bonzo signed was on my exact birth date, though he didn't start using 2002's until 3 or 4 later according to the list of cymbals

they could change the '2oo2' line to the '2o2o' line
(I always liked their font choices).

They'll probably do something similar to the early 2000s with a run of black label 2002s.

I hope they do, but I'm holding my breath.
I feel they've been slacking the past few years.
I mean they told me the cymbal cleaner was on back order in 2018, or early 19. Still nothing. I did get a few bottles off Ebay when i first heard that

50 years since introduction, but not necessarily 50 years in production. Weren't they kind of out of production between 1986-1993? Although I have heard you could technically still get them during the 1OOO/2OOO/3OOO era.

Actually have to disagree with the 2002 introduced in 70’s, the use of CuSn8 alloy goes back to the 60’s. From my perspective it was more of name introduction with the same alloy.

Here's the Paiste timeline

Kevin, I'm not sure I'm following your reasoning here? Is that like saying all Zildjian B20 cymbals are the same cymbal?
I have a set of Giant Beats, as well as 2002's. Yes, they're made from the same alloy, but are very different in sound/tone, hammering, etc...
