Paiste Introduces RUDE Wild Crashes
(Paiste | Posted 2007-02-09)
Following the «wild» success of last year’s Wild Crash introduction in the 2002 Series, the renowned Swiss cymbal maker Paiste now introduces RUDE Wild Crashes in 17”, 18”, 19” & 20” sizes at the 2007 Winter NAMM Show. In the RUDE version, the meaty, roaring, wild character of the Wild Crash is further radicalized due to the brazen, aggressive sound that is typical for RUDE cymbals. RUDE Wild Crashes are therefore perfectly suited for extreme Rock, Punk and Metal applications.
The RUDE series was developed in the late 70’s, when Rock and Metal were already well established and the new PUNK genre made its debut. RUDE cymbals, with their un-lathed surface, uniform thickness, and aggressive frequency mix perfectly mirrored the unconventional trends of the time.
As today’s popular music firmly roots itself in the history of Rock, Metal and Punk and continues to expand these genres, RUDE cymbals not only continue to be very appropriate sounds for today’s drummers, they also represent the original article.
RUDE cymbals are entirely made by hand in Switzerland using traditional methods that have remained unchanged in over half a century.
