When I first brought this cymbal home from the store, I couldn't wait to play it. I put it on my stand (I used it as my main crash), and hit it. It was loud. Very loud. I tried to incorporate this into my playing, but by myself, it too loud (I got the 18" version). I was upset, but the next day, my band came over to practice. I realized that the cymbal is made to be heard over the 2 guitars, bass, and vocals. It was incredible! It works incredibly well as a second/trash ride, too! Hit it loud or with the tip of the stick, it's a great addition to anyone's kit!

Great cymbal if you are a soft drummer.

This cymbal sounds great with any set of cymbals...when its not cracked. About a year ago i got this cymbal as a gift and its worked wonders for me until it cracked. If you are a hard hitter on your drums then this cymbal is not for you. Sadly, its made for harder music but if its going to crack after a year of playing then i find that to be a bit rediculous. But hey, thats just me.

Pure metal crash

By NuclearHug

from Belgium, Borgloon

Comments about Paiste Rude Crash Ride Cymbal:

I'm a huge fan of b8. About six months ago, al my thinner crashes were cracked again, so I wanted a thicker crash. I found a 17" version of these rudes in a local shop and bought it after comparing it to the rest of the metalcrashes there. I really like this one. Eccept from that it's extremely loud and penetrating, it has also some deep lower frecuencies to give it such a powerfull sound. first i didn't like paiste, but after playing an hour with this one i changed my mind. It's one of the best metalcrashes you can get and it WON'T crack at all!

These are all metal

By Med Hed Drummer

from Michigan

Comments about Paiste Rude Crash Ride Cymbal:

This rude series is great for metal. Their loud and durable. I have been using the same three for three years now and wont be switching for a while. The only problem I had with them was they're too loud for the studio. I had to soften my hits, to me not a big deal. I am planning on using these for quite a while, their the best.

Only for band purposes...

By JJ184

from Germany

Comments about Paiste Rude Crash Ride Cymbal:

I bought one 18" Crash/Ride, cause I got a nice deal on eBay and I liked the sound examples on the pAiste Homepage. But when I played it, I was rather disappointed. The cymbal sounds really gongy and is only able to produce a decent sound when hit really (!) hard. Anyone who tells you, he uses these for jazz or something is probably not telling the truth... If you play in a band they are good, because they cut through guitars and stuff. But for playing alone and anything but metal, they won't do it. Probably gonna sell this one and get me a nice 2002 Power Crash, or maybe a thin Rude. Positive thing is, the bell is nice and the ride sound too, but I need it as a crash, so...

By SinisterUrge

from Cali

Comments about Paiste Rude Crash Ride Cymbal:

All I have to say is that this thing will probly never break or even crack it is so thick. It sounds very deep and dark but I guess it is a crash ride! these are crap compared to my avedis. If they werent as expesive they might be worth it.

There is no other

By teamjoe26

from Norwalk, Oh

Comments about Paiste Rude Crash Ride Cymbal:

I've only been playing PAiSte for a little over a year & I could kick myself in the ying yang for never even giving them a chance. I been through the best of the best Zildjian & Sabian pieces & nothing comes close to the sound & or value of a PAiSte. I play in 4 totally different style local cover bands & PAiSte has the versatality in their sound to cover all the different genres hands down. My 19" PAiSte RUDE Crash/Ride is so universal it's SIC. Killer Crash & Ride. It's Quite the space saver. PAiSte 4 life.

Just what I needed!

By Jimmy Q.

from El Paso, TX

Comments about Paiste Rude Crash Ride Cymbal:

I was unshure of purchasing an additional crash or ride cymbal for my kit until I came across this awesome Rude crash/ride cymbal! It's just what I needed. As a ride: very bright with nylon tipped drumsticks with a high pitched and dry bell. As a crash: slow response time, but LOUD and powerfull! A pleasingly fun addition to any kit, especially for someone in need of quality with the best of both worlds "crash/ride"!!!

Stick Out From The Crowd!

By BigDrumHitHard

from Kansas City

Comments about Paiste Rude Crash Ride Cymbal:

These may have hit their peak in popularity back in the 80's, but they still sound better than most crash cymbals today. I have two 18's on my kit, and I get more compliments than any other cymbals I have ever owned, and there's been alot. Sound men simply love them, they sound like a digitally mastered crash cymbal in a sticky bar room live setting. And, man, do they cut! Dark when up close or in a small room, high when further away or in a larger room - what could be better? I've had Zildjian A's, Sabian AA's, Paiste 2002's, and these Rude's rule. I have been around all the other crashes also - K's, A Customs, HH's, Paiste Signature's, etc. These have the best sound of any crash I've ever heard, can't believe they can be so seldomly seen. I am the only drummer in my area that I've seen who even has them, and can't believe how many drummers I meet who have never even heard of them. The only reason I tried Rudes is because I have grown very tired of cracked cymbals and I hate cheap cymbal sounds, so I gave these a try. Did some 'A' 'B' comparisons with Zildjian Z Customs and there was no contest. Loved my 2002's, but all 3 ended up cracked within a couple of months of each other after about a year of use. If you play any kind of live music that has guitar and bass amps, these will not let you down. Spend the extra $$ cause these look to last longer anyway.

Perfect

By LucCole

from Stevens Point, WI

Comments about Paiste Rude Crash Ride Cymbal:

You can have your high-end Zildjans with their wide range of overtones and crazy sounding effects. You can have your high-end Istanbuls with their renown darkness. But if you want a straight-up good sounding cymbal: I mean something dark, versatile and universally complimentary to ANY song of ANY genre, then look no further than the RUDE line. I've used them in Jazz, Country, Metal, Funk - you name it. Even the bell sounds like an instrument unto itself. Works great for live shows and session work alike.

solid and reliable product

By MusicForLife

from Northern NH

Comments about Paiste Rude Crash Ride Cymbal:

I bought a 17" a few months ago and I have to say it cuts through and is perfect for loud situations. If you play hard and you play a lot, this cymbal will stand up to anything you throw at it. I mean, you could probably even throw a brick at it and it wouldn't even phase it.I love it. would have been a perfect 5, but I gave it a 4 for value, because I think everything is overpriced nowadays.great product paiste

So loud, it's rude

By Andy

from Kent, WA

Comments about Paiste Rude Crash Ride Cymbal:

Yeah, it's a pretty killer deal. The cymbal is very quick to respond and has a VERY nice tone. In addition, this thing is a piece of muscle. I have a friend in an L.A. marching band, in his 40's and has owned this puppy since high school. The great thing about the versatility of this cymbal is I used to not belive in "crash/rides" before I got this. It has a very dry ride to it yet the crash is loud and powerful. Buy this!
