  • Here's A RARE Paiste cymbal and friend of Stewart Copeland...THE ORIGINAL 24"!  From back in the day!!  1985!  

  • This one is not in the catalogue. Yes, it's true, back in the 80s they did offer this up for a hot minute. Then it disappeared like Jimmy Hoffa. 

  • Well with the luck of the Irish coursing through my veins I was able to locate one!  
  • And here it is!!

  • These behemoths were rare even when they WERE being produced!

  • What's great about this specific Paiste Original RUDE is that it is DARK AND LOW sounding. Very dark and low! And dig the Original style RUDE hammering around the circumference on the underside.

  • The re-issue Rudes are nice but they’re different from these 80s ones.  

  • The weight is 4154 grams. The bell measures a generous 6" and delivers an earsplitting, focused PING tone. 

  • Think…well…The Police!  THAT bell sound!

  • A simply fantastic sounding “DING!” As you migrate down to the playing field this 24" begins to open up....but just barely. This is a fairly dry Paiste. Which is unusual. In general most Paiste Rides have a pretty full wash to them.... And it's DARK sounding too. The pitch is LOW for a 24" and chime-like and the stick definition is terrific.

  • Crash on the edge to start a sonic avalanche! I mean…it’s the Original RUDE 24”!  
  • A BEAST!

  • And hell, these 24" were super hard to find back in 1985!

  • Typical use but nothing that affects the longevity!  Clearly!  

  • This 2 foot behemoth is a JOY to play!  It’s one of my favorite Paistes and it’s super rare!
