I bought this ride about 8 years ago and I love it more each time I play it. The bell has an amazing sound and is really well defined and loud. The cymbal has a nice ping and provides a decent wash. If anything, It has gotten better with age and I'm not looking to replace it anytime soon. I play in a metal band and this is the perfect ride to cut through the mix of loud guitar amps.

I own this 20" power ride I was suprised that this cymbal had two unmatched sounds when I used it. It has a very loud middle sounding bell sound when hit hard. However it has a rather low sounding unmatched ride sound not suitible for being called an actual Power ride...I've used Paiste ride cymbals in the past and this cymbal is a huge disoppointment for it's actual ride sound. I wish I could find the Paiste cymbal Rock ride I used years ago: I had a 20" Rock ride with a Green color Paiste lettering, produced 20 years ago that had the best true Ride sound that I had ever played. I still remember all the commplements from the sound it had, unsurpased to todays sound. I purchased this Rude cymbal to complete my set of Rude cymbals. I was not impressed at all with this cymbal unmatched sound considering how well all the other Rude cymbals sound that I currently own. This cymbal is only good for it's loud bell sound.

Comments about Paiste Rude Power Ride:

A pure deep ride with clean stick sound and a beautiful bell. DO NOT- I repeat: DO NOT crash this cymbal. If you crash this ride it will ring for years! I know it's a penny thick, literally, but it will wash away every audible noise in existence. That being said, with proper technique and good control this ride keeps the beat and then some. Beautiful hammering. Bravo Paiste

Cuts through the triple rectifiers

By JAYsilence

from Winnipeg, CANADA

Comments about Paiste Rude Power Ride:

Nice ping sound that cuts right through those bastardly Mesa triple rectifier stacks. Your playing won't get lost, and the definition is incredible. The bell is crazy, super loud and penetrating. The dinstintive RUDE attitude comes though in the wash of this cymbal. It's incredible how Paiste can make a cymbal sound raw like this, but still beautiful at the same time. If you like the pingy ride sound, and want to ACTUALLY HEAR what you're playing, than this is what you want to buy. As soon as you play a top-of-the-line Paiste cymbal, you'll never go back to that horrid Zildjian/Sabian garbage...

Ride Cymbal

By Brett-kKcTd

Comments about Paiste Rude Power Ride:

I'm a ride cymbal kind of guy. This baby really puts out a ping. The bell is great. It really does "pierce" and it's big enough that the cymbal washer doesn't get in your way. Rudes are ugly, but they sound great. This cymbal is made for punk, rock, and metal. I'm not sure any other genres call for this ride cymbal. This product is amazing.

AWSOME CYMBAL!

By GRINDMAN!

from Baltimore, MD

Comments about Paiste Rude Power Ride:

I heard alot of good things about this cymbal and decided to try it out. This cymbal is worth every *** d*** penny! If you are in a death metal or grindcore band forget about every other ride and buy this. Boy I can acctually hear myself playing! And my blast beats sound awsome on this thing!

Comments about Paiste Rude Power Ride:

I've been drumming for a few years new and was looking for a ride upgrade. And this it it!This is one of the best cymbals I've played, I've played a zildjain a coustom ping ride andpaistie signature. This is the best for the price. But I only gave it a 4.5 in features because the bell is hard to hit dead on.

Great, but go with a Ride/Crash instead

By Hap

Comments about Paiste Rude Power Ride:

I have been using Rudes since they first came on the market. In the early days they didn't have the Power Ride, they had the Ride/Crash as the Ride of the line. They came out with the Power Ride to fill the needs of the 80's Metal Glam band era. Very pingy. Problem is, they are not crashable at all, just heavy ping. Most rock/punk bands of today require a ride that can be ridden hard and crashed when needed. The Ride/Crash is perfect for this. Check it out on Paiste's web site and listen for yourself before you buy. Power Rides are a one trick pony, thats why lots of them find their way to ebay.

Comments about Paiste Rude Power Ride:

I own the 20" and I love it. The bell on this thing is amazing, the sustain is great. Its just a piercing cymbal. I've had mine for two years now and am not looking at replacing it any time soon.

Comments about Paiste Rude Power Ride:

Great solid cymbal.Pingy dark,pure metal sound.Paistes' flagship metal cymbal.If you are a hardcore drummer like me and need something crashy,this is not the cymbal for you!If you crash it its just a messy dark loud mess.If thats you check the crash/ride version.If you need a pure sound for death metal look no further.Check out Impending Doom,I saw their concert and this is the ride he uses.
