These definitely different cymbals were 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.
RUDE Mega Power Ride "Eclipse"
Bright, full, warm, deep, somewhat dry, powerful.
Wide range, clean mix.
Heavy response, very balanced feel.
Clear, cutting stick sound over big, full wash.
Extremely loud, cutting ride with an enormous, big, loud and deep sounding bell.
This special ride cymbal was created by Paiste's Sound Development team in collaboration with John Dolmayan, one of today's most influential Rock drummers.
"This is a monster! The extra heavy weight lends to it's hard, massive, almost dry loud ping. The bell is loud, very "rounded" sounding, and similar to a cowbell IMO! This ride will cut through the half stacks and then some. It's too bad they don't offer this in 22" as that would be perfect! Great sounding ride, big ping, heavy feel, actually a medium to short sustain with a monster loud bell sound. Great for cutting cars in half! Monster, similar to the dim power 24 mega, but a bit more raw sounding. The bell sounds like a cow bell. The finish is not typical rude, more like green colored 2002. Still, this freakish ride is a killer metal ride, and a must try for anyone looking to kill a small town." - Roman
