OVERVIEW

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.

FEATURES
Weight: thin
Volume: medium soft to loud
Stick Sound: washy, crisp
Intensity: lively
Sustain: fairly long
Bell Character: integrated
Sound Character: full, dark, energetic with a brilliant broad sparkle underneath the overall cutting character
Responsive, explosive, shattering
attack

Thin? Please...

By the Jignod

from Lafayette Indiana

Comments about Paiste Rude Thin Crash:

I bought the 18" and its my second rude (the other being the 18" china) This is the thickist thin crash I've ever used. It has a nice musical decay and fits in well with my Paiste Sigs. I'd recommend this to anyone. Esp. those of you who ply those Zils and Sabian craps.

Thin? Not really...

By JesusFreak517

from Alma, WI

Comments about Paiste Rude Thin Crash:

I've just recently switched over to Paiste about two years ago, and have to say I've never been more satisfied with the sound of my cymbals. They're expensive, yes, but well worth it, especially if you usually buy used like I do. I was at a music shop just last week and saw the RUDE thin crashes set up with a WILD crash as well. I felt the cymbal, it's not thin AT ALL! It's more like a medium/medium heavy crash, but sounds like a power crash. These would be a perfect all-around cymbal. The wild crash was insanely loud, also. So loud it made me dizzy. Check it.

Multi-Purpose

By The DarkOne

Comments about Paiste Rude Thin Crash:

It's "thin" in relation to the other RUDE cymbals, but it has loads of power to it. I have used the 18" and it's actually a great compliment to my 18" 2002 crash. It has a deep tone and you can do a lot with it. You can use it for more than just Metal. If your looking for a lower tone in a Crash that's still versatile and still compliments the other series of cymbals take a closer look at this one.

Holy crap it's loud!

By Zach Provost-kwTSO

from Charleston, SC

Comments about Paiste Rude Thin Crash:

I got the 19" a few weeks ago and it is def. worth every penny. My guitarist didnt see me set her up and when I hit it for the first time he stopped playing and said "What was THAT!?!" Easily the thickest thin crash I've ever played, you wont be disappointed.

MUST BUY

By OfTheDead

from Chicago, IL

Comments about Paiste Rude Thin Crash:

I own the 16" and 17" thin crashes as well as the 20" power ride and two 18" chinas, all i can say is the Rude line is hands down the best i have ever played. For metal or ANY other genre out there. If you are like me and read reviews before making purchases, especially pricey cymbal purchase, I STRONGLY urge you to buy these cymbals, you will not be disappointed

      The strongest and most versatile cymbal I've ever owned. I've had mine for going on 8 years, three bands bands, 7 tours and literally hundreds of shows... NO CRACKS. It ha such a beautiful range, that you could even use it as a light jazz ride if need be. I'll recommend this particular cymbal till the end of time.

      Best Crash cymbal I've ever owned!

      Pros

      • Bright Sound
      • Explosive Attack
      • Responsive Feel
      • Very Loud
      • Will Cut Through Anything

      Cons

        Best Uses

        • Hard Rock/Metal bands
        • Loud Music

        Comments about Paiste Rude Thin Crash:

        A very loud and energetic cymbal. Perfect for Hard Rock/Metal music or any loud genre of music. Of all the RUDE Crash cymbals (Thin, Wild, Crash/Ride) this one is the darkest sounding one. Yet it still has an explosive attack and will cut through anything! Also, do not let the word "Thin" throw you off, it is only thin compared to the other RUDE crash cymbals, and is actually more of a medium weighted cymbal.

        So if you're looking for a very loud, explosive, raw, and above all great sounding cymbal, this is the one to get!!

        Comments about Paiste Rude Thin Crash:

        This crash is absolutely insane! It was purposefully made to be louder than any other crash out there! 17" has a great lower pitch when paired with my 17" wild crash, a little more than a full octave difference. Brutal explosive shattering hail storm in my brain O.o

        I got the 19" one and I cannot hit it without ear plugs or else my ears start ringing for awhile. The sound cuts through all my friends' stacks and the sound it gives is just amazing.

        Comments about Paiste Rude Thin Crash:

        I've had my 19 inch for almost 2 years and it was my favorite cymbal out of all 8 I own. Recently it cracked and I am devistated. The cymbal has a great sound and cuts through perfectly. Also its the loudist cymbal I have ever hit. Im interested in replacing it with the new rude Wild crashes.

        simply amazing.

        By FLdrummer

        from ventura county, CA

        Comments about Paiste Rude Thin Crash:

        Although it is quite expensive, it is more quality, and sheer power than you could ever expect from a crash cymbal. I play in a metal band and it?s a good multi-purpose cymbal. Even though it?s a "thin" crash, it has a heavy feel, yet extremely responsive. It?s a good accompaniment to other beats, and it's also excellent to crash/ride on.

        Comments about Paiste Rude Thin Crash:

        First of all I am an old timer 42, whom has played drums on and off for more than 30 years,I used these types of cymbals more than 20 years ago and I was surprized to be able to purchase them again new. The sound they produce is a dark beautiful sound, perfect for Rock or Blues music sounds. I purchased all of the Rudes one of each of the Rude serious MF sells, plus Hi Hats. These cymbals Rock. They are not shiney or very pretty, nor are they cheaply made. Remember you get what you pay for. These Swiss made cymbals are heavy and in my opinon made like Swiss made clocks. Only better sounding. If you have a chance to hear them live against Zildjians or Sabians same size and style, you won't believe the differance in sudstain or abiance texture. Whiether I am playing them soft or hard they are my favorite choice. I also use signature fast crash to add a bright shimmer sound to complete my set.

        Comments about Paiste Rude Thin Crash:

        These are "thin" crash cymbals in name only. They perform like angry rock crashes. They are powerful and cutting, but retain that silvery Paiste crash shimmer that we all know and love. I use my 20" as a crash ride, and it has stood up to the beatings I've given it very well.

        Almost Perfect

        By Brett-kKcTd

        from Holstein, IA

        See all my reviews

        Comments about Paiste Rude Thin Crash:

        I was worried about buying a set of Paiste Rudes because the crashes were all referred to as crash/rides. I upgraded from Sabian XS20's, where I had an 18" rock crash. That crash was extremely hard to make sound with. It took an extremely powerful hit, which wouldn't sound appropriate in some situations. When I saw Paiste came out with the Thin Crash, I was overwhelmed. I was also a bit worried that the would be too thin. These puppies are built to last. They absolutely shoot sound out of them the instant you hit them. I have the 17" and the 18". The sound can also be controlled, which is awesome.Rudes may be terribly ugly, but they sound beautiful. The attack is great, they shimmer, and sound great for the genre they were designed for. I expect to see more drummers adopt Rudes because of the addition of the Thin Crashes.

        Incredible, Amazing, Outstanding...

        By DDrum

        from Nebraska

        Comments about Paiste Rude Thin Crash:

        RUDE would be the perfect way to describe these cymbals. This crash cuts out from any other cymbal I have heard. It is so loud, at local places no one i know has had to mic them. They are also very versatile. Play Anywhere from jazz, classic rock, swing, metal, death metal with them. Even though they are pricey, it is worth it. This cymbal is not going to crack or bend or anything. For me, It's the exact same now as it was when i got it. Spend the extra cash and you'll never have to replace it.
