I have owned and used Paiste Rudes since 1983. I am reviewing a new 18" crash/ride here and it is an excellent cymbal!I think that the "Rude" name belies the sound and uses for this series. Drummers get the impression that these should only be used by drummers who are the personification of Animal from the Muppets. This is not the case.While I probably would not play a great deal of intimate jazz gigs with this crash (unless I used it as a ride), it can be used in many different settings. It is perfect for rock and metal, of course, but it would be perfectly fine in most amplified settings. Playing an amplified country gig would be just fine. Funk? No problem. Blues and Classic Rock? Sure. Pop would work, too. FWIW, I am not simply a metalhead. I also own a modest set of Zildjian K Customs that I use where appropriate.I actually compared this crash, side-by-side, with an 18" Paiste Signature Power Crash, 18" Paiste 2002 Crash, 18" Paiste 2002 Power Crash, and an 18" Paiste 2002 Medium. I also looked at Zildjian A and Z Custom, too, but wanted to stay with Paiste this time.I felt that the Rude was simply a better sounding crash than the others, with the Medium a close second. The Sig. Power Crash sounded too constipated (it never felt like it opened up fully), the 2002 Power Crash lacked the sweetness that I want from a crash on the top end, and the 2002 crash had a nice, pure sound, but I felt it lacked the overall strength and drive that I sought.The Rude had everything I wanted. It is a bright, full-bodied crash. It has the classic, pure cut of 2002s with a fatter, wetter tone. Despite the name, I can still use dynamics with the cymbal. Not everything has to be played fortissimo. In addition, it is a durable piece of metal that one does not have to worry about overplaying. This is great for those gigs where the microphone coverage is dodgy at best.Finally, I would like to add that it sounds great recorded. I listened to a playback of a live, outdoor recording I did with a contemporary worship band (I was actually a substitute) in front of an audience of about 500-600 people. My Rudes were fat...dare I say, Bonham-esque. I was kind of fearing that they might just sound like a loud, obnoxious roar, but they did a great job and sounded like something that one would hear on the radio.Again, I think that many drummers overlook these cymbals because of the name. They can certainly be played loudly, but I say give them a try. They may be more civilized than you think.

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.

Paiste RUDE series ain't playin around.

By skinskribe

from Austin, TX

Comments about Paiste Rude Crash Ride Cymbal:

I've played a lot of the other brands of cymbals and I can honestly say nothing has ever sounded as good as the RUDE series. I play heavy fast music and I will never play any other brand of cymbal. Amazing tone and outstanding quality makes it worth owning at least one.

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.

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...

The most sickest cymbals ever made!

By Anonymous

from Undisclosed

Comments about Paiste Rude Crash Ride Cymbal:

I own a Tama Starclassic 10 Piece Double Bass Set. With 14 total Paiste cymbals. 9 RUDE's. With 14" Sound Edge, 2 16" Crash/Rides, 17" Crash/Ride, 2 18" Crash/Rides, 19" Crash/Ride, 20" power ride, and 18" China Paiste Rude's. These are the most sickest and most awesome cymbals ever made. I am a life long paiste fan. It has an explosiveness when struck, cuts through the heavy guitar riffs, an integrated bell with a raw ping, and unlathed for loud and aggressive playing. RUDE's came out in 1980, when heavy metal was making a big mainstream. And Paiste wanted to make a cymbal for the metal drummers. These bad boys have never let me down and they are very durable and versatile. If you are a heavy metal drummer. Get these!!!! They are worth every penny! And the drummers that use these are Dave Lombardo of Slayer, Nicko McBrain of Iron Maiden, Charlie Benante of Anthrax, and Joey Jordison of Slipknot.

best crash cymbals

By j. del Valle

from Miami,FL

Comments about Paiste Rude Crash Ride Cymbal:

I am a lifelong Zildjian user but recently switched from Zildjian to Paiste after sitting in on a friend's kit at an outdoor show. I couldn't believe how well these cymbals cut through the "other" noise on stage. Beautiful wash and much more versatile than the name RUDE would imply. I bought the 17 inch and fell so in love with it that I went out and bought the 19 and 20 inch to match along with 2002 hi-hats. I use them in just about every situation. Worth every penny!

This is an excellent cymbal for loud music...

By butnutz

from New York City

Comments about Paiste Rude Crash Ride Cymbal:

This Paiste cymbal is truly unique, they do not lie when they they these cymabls dont sacrifice class for power.unlike other high volume cymbals these are musical, and can be used at slightly lower volumes.I reccomend these cymbals to any drummer who finds their expensive, beautifal sounding cymbals lost in the mix because of all the noise from your guitarists.

Stick Out From The Crowd!

By BigDrumHitHard

from Kansas City

See all my reviews

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.

Killer cymbal

By Rage Against the Machine Fan

from Minnesota

See all my reviews

Comments about Paiste Rude Crash Ride Cymbal:

This cymbal is great. It's really sturdy, even when I had it on a really weak stand and it fell over and it didn't even scratch or dent at all. I use it for more of a ride than a crash because it has such a good ping sound. I love this cymbal and it's such a good product and you will be reall happy if you get this.

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.
