The Paiste 18" Rude Wild Crash Cymbal features a very energetic and powerful, metallic, hissing while maintaining a fairly narrow range and a fairly clean mix. It is very responsive, and has a giving feel. This cymbal is very well suited for crash/ride patterns. This is a strong, sturdy, loud crash for aggressive playing styles in loud and extreme musical genres.
Paiste's Rude line of cymbals are definitely different cymbals. Inspired by the revolution of punk and metal during the late 1970s, RUDE continues to be the leading choice of sound for raw, merciless and powerful musical energy in Rock, Metal, and Punk.
