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.

  • Brutal sound!

    As reviewed by J on 8/8/2008

    I recently picked up two of these cymbals. a 17" and a 19" to replace two zildjians that I had beaten to death. These cymbals sound amazing.. they cut through with the right amount but also blend well with the music to really give what your playing that drive. I would highly recommend these to anyone playing really heavy driving in your face styles of music. you wont be disappointed

  • Huge killer sound !

    As reviewed by Deammer on 11/15/2007

    Probably the best of Paiste ! The Rude Thin Crash has an explosive, aggressive and dark tone that cuts through anything. You can play it softly and get that crispy, sparkling sound I like, but you can also beat it to death and get the biggest sound ever ! I recommend buying this for those who know what sound they're looking for, but still I sometimes play blues and rock and it does a great job. An awesome value !

  • Nice crash

    As reviewed by 415 Drummerr on 2/21/2008

    This cymbal is tight. It suprises me that such a heavy cymbal can bring on such a melodic tone. Its bright, but when you hammer it, it still brings this. I can give this cymbal everything Ive got, and it will still manage the shiny tone. I have this thing paired with a paiste signature and its a beautiful pair. And since I got the 19 inch its a great ride, with a powerful bell.
