Nottwil/Switzerland – The renowned cymbal maker Paiste announces the launch of the RUDE Basher, Shred Bell and Blast China models.

In 1980 Paiste released RUDE, raw cymbals for the extreme volume required by the punk and heavy metal scene of that time. Since then, the series has gained cult status and remains unique in the cymbal world. In collaboration with Alex Gonzalez, since 1987 drummer of Mexico’s most successful rock band Maná and co-founder of new metal project De La Tierra, Paiste added new exciting sounds to the RUDE series with the Basher, Shred Bell and Blast China models.

Alex nailed it best, as he says in his own words:

«18" & 20" Basher - The name says it all! Imagine a 2002 Medium on steroids! Lively, explosive but controlled at the same time! Great to bash out crash/ride patterns and unique crash sounds!

12" & 14" Shred Bell - A unique cymbal - you can "shred"" fast ride patterns on it, and get a controlled, lively, metallic sound or hit it and out comes an awesome, cutting bell sound!

14" Blast China - Small but in your face! Explosive, lively, raw, cutting cymbal. Great for blast beat patterns and china hits. Perfect size to set up anywhere around your kit.

3 different cymbals, 3 unique sounds, one choice – my new RUDEs.»

Thank you, Alex.

RUDEs are entirely made by hand from the originally used CuSn8 bronze in Switzerland using traditional methods that have remained unchanged in over half a century.
