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.
Medium bright, raw, full, energetic.
Fairly wide range, complex mix.
Fairly heavy feel, metallic ping over dirty, full supporting wash.
Great for full, loud ride playing and incredibly strong, full crashes.
"This is a super solid cymbal with a ton of craftsmanship. I believe it has a very focused demographic but can be versatile if used properly. Has a very low, washy sound to it but great stick definition and a ton of articulation. To get the full effect of the this cymbal it has to be struck rather hard so make sure you have a solid cymbal stand." - Charlie
"If you want a straight-up good sounding cymbal: I mean something dark, versatile and universally complimentary to any song of Aany genre, then look no further than this cymbal. I've used them in Jazz, Country, Metal, Funk - you name it. Even the bell sounds like an instrument unto itself. Works great for live shows and session work alike." - Luc Cole
