  • Amazing Crash

    As reviewed by Phil on 11/15/2007

    This is an amazing china. I play metal, and this china delivers the distinct china sound that I expect to be there. Durable, it gets played quite frequently and has yet to develop a deficiency. I'd recommend it.

  • One of the Best Chinas Ever!

    As reviewed by on 6/28/2007

    This China has a downright bright TRASHY sound that will pierce your ear drums! It is almost exactly equivalent to either the Zildjian Z Custom China, or the Zildjian Oriental China Trash! If your looking for a China that sounds equivalent to either one of those two, for a little bit more affordable price, this China is for you!

  • Awsome china

    As reviewed by Hooter on 12/31/2009

    The Paiste Rude china is the hands down best sounding china I have ever played. From very aggressive metal to playing in the church praise band it is just the best. Trashy, articulate and very playable. With other brands I have not had very good luck with durability and stamina. Bottom line simply the best!
