I bought my Paiste 602 hi hats weeks after buying my second pair of 2002 sound edge hats (because that's what I'd always used). I found the 2002's were too harsh for what I'm doing now and needed something powerful, but somehow softer with a good 'bark'. I tried every pair of hats in the store and kept coming back to these. I love 'um!
