See All Paiste China Cymbals

      Strong, sizzling and deep layered china sound that is perfectly suited for any styles of Rock music.

      The Paiste Rude Novo Cymbal delivers a bright, silky, metallic, full, slightly trashy and very powerful sound. It has a wide range and fairly clean mix. Comfortable, responsive and somewhat soft feel. Exotic type of china that also offers the sound and function of a crash cymbal. Its unique shape makes both the bell and downward turned china edge accessible at once. For unique applications and percussive settings.

      Introduction: 1980

      Background: The Rude Novo cymbal was created as a response to the extreme developments in Heavy Metal and Punk which required extreme cutting power and volume - RUDE was re-launched as 3000 RUDE, then 2002 RUDE and returns to its classic RUDE name in 1999 - In 2005 the RUDE series is expanded with the introduction of Thin Crash models, bringing more control and sophistication to that series

      Innovation: First cymbal series without lathing featuring uniform thickness and sound engineering to compete with extreme mid-range frequencies and volume levels

      Alloy: CuSn8 Bronze, also known as "2002 Bronze"

      Quality: Professional

      Production: Manual Craftsmanship - Hand Hammering

      Applications: Medium loud to very loud - Live and Recording - Punk, Heavy Metal, Modern Metal derivatives, and contemporary styles rooted in or similar to those styles

      Users: Working Musicians, Enthusiasts - All players who need raw energy and extreme cutting power without sacrificing musical cymbal sound

      Sound: Raw, lively, bright, energetic, with heavy mid-range harmonics and powerful, cutting characteristics

      Looks: Funky, raw surface texture with deep brown to beige and greenish hues featuring prominent hammering patterns - Prominent, classic RUDE white silk screening

      Recognition: Attracted a wide following and gained popularity beyond their typical musical application - Paiste's RUDE cymbals retain a faithful following and has become a classic cymbal sound

      • Sizes: 18", 20"

      Great abrasive china

          Comments about Paiste Rude Novo China Cymbal:

          Used to have a Sabian AA Holy China, although it had that crisp attack I like out of a china, it was pretty thin and lacking any real crunch. Saw some vids of Lombardo from Slayer playing this Novo china and really enjoyed the power of it. It's defiently for louder more aggressive playing styles, but as with the RUDE series, it's still diverse. It is slightly washy with repeated hits, you really gotta lay into it to get the full potential but then again it is a RUDE, so you know its extremely durable. Very bright, heavy, in your face sound and the upwards bell is very nice, giving it a slight sense of crash like ability. Worth getting for playing very loud situations

          Comments about Paiste Rude Novo China Cymbal:

          Unlike any China ever made. A one of a kind original- hard hitting blaster. Beautiful lathing and hammer marks. The bell is accessible too! Sounds like a gong on steroids. 20" monster is so loud that I can hear it a block away from my jam pad. Can I get an amen? Paiste nailed this one in the metal-forical masterpiece.

          nice cymbal

          By Mr. Biggles

          from North carolina

          Comments about Paiste Rude Novo China Cymbal:

          its a nice cymbal. Its not as trashy as i would like. I have this and the regular paiste rude china. I like my regular paiste rude china way better then this one. Its louder and projects way more. This cymbal cuts through just fine.. but its not as warm as the paiste rude china. Its still a great cymbal but you should get the regular paiste rude china.
