Sophisticated rudeness.

The Rude Thin Crash provides today's more sophisticated punk and metal drummers with an additional choice in the Rude sound--cymbals with that same brazen, audacious sound that can be played and controlled with more differentiation.

The Rude Series was developed in the late '70s, when rock and metal were nearing temporary maturity and were decidedly sidestepped by the new punk genre. This new form of music singularly distinguished itself by disregarding all the rules and by establishing a brazen, aggressive sound all of its own. Rude cymbals, with their un-lathed surface, uniform thickness, and aggressive frequency mix perfectly mirrored the unconventional trend of the time. Today's popular music firmly roots itself in the history of rock, metal and punk and continues to expand these genres, Rude cymbals continue to be very appropriate sounds for drummers.

Great Cymbal


from Michigan

Comments about Paiste Rude Thin Crash:

I bought the cymbal about a year ago because I was looking for a bigger sound on my kit. I previously had a 16" 2002 crash and 18" 2002 crash and I did not like the overall sound, so I traded in my 16" for this cymbal and it surprisingly accented my 18" 2002 crash very well. The 2002 works as a crash ride and accents the snare and the RUDE accents to bass drum and toms and works great as a crash ride for a more Metal sound. If you want a bigger sound on your kit without going too far out there check this one out.
