Developed in conjunction with the rise of punk and heavy metal in the mid to late '70s, the Paiste RUDE series was designed to function optimally in high-decibel playing environments. The cymbals features heavier weights, extended hammering patterns and a raw lathing.

The Power Ride is constructed with defined bow hammering and an extra-heavy weight for clarity in sticking and a high-volume response.
Years of production: 1980-present

Composition: CuSn8 "2002" Bronze

    Cuts through the mix, but can still be played with finesse to get a nice ping and ride. The bell will match up with the old Zildjian Rock rides of the 70's. My go to lineup for the 80's rock scene.
