Cymbals Rude

These definitively different cymbals were inspired by the revolution of punk and metal during the late 1970's. RUDE continues to be the leading choice for raw, merciless and powerful musical energy in Rock, Metal and Punk.

The tone and energy of the Rude series have been behind some of the most genre defining bands of modern rock, from Slipknot and Slayer to The Ramones and Anthrax, they've provided that perfect high energy musicality unequaled by any other cymbal out there.

A large array of weights and sizes provide a wide, aggressive sonic spectrum that screams from beyond the onstage din, every hi-hat, crash, china or ride strike ringing loud and true time and time again.
