  • Here’s a RARE pair of Paistes!  

  • The elusive 2002 RUDE Hihats.  You hardly ever see these.  And they’re dark-sounding and overall very CLEAN. 

  • Raw. Unlathed. Fairly dark. Strong logos - and check out those logos too! White 2002 logo.  They sound darker and more complex than the newer Rude Re-issues. 

  • The RUDES have become one of Paiste’s hallmark series - used by Stewart Copeland, Alex Van Halen, and many others. 

  • Alex specifically used these 2002 Rudes too! A great era! 

  • 14” RUDE 2002 Paiste Hihats in great shape.  

  • 894 and 1164 grams. 

  • Paiste describes these Rudes as:

  • Medium bright, raw, full, energetic. Wide range, complex mix. Heavy, full feel. Raw, full, loud open sound. Tight, full, cutting chick sound. Versatile, all-round hi-hat for loud playing."

  • Raw, dry, with pronounced stick and trashy open-closed sound. Cuts well in loud situations while having a versatile use, depending on the player's touch.“ 

  • A bit confusing ….but the keywords here are: 

  • Raw, dry, cutting, tight, cutting chick. Cut well in loud situations but still versatile. 

  • This particular pair of 2002s is fairly DARK sounding. And they have a pinch of complexity when opened! They’re more complex than the Rude re-issues. 

  • At these grams weights, they’re not overly clanky.  They sound great in medium lower settings too. They’re tight and controlled, compliments of the raw and unlathed surface. 

  • Classic very hard to find Paistes.  And they’re in great shape!  No issues.  Overall clean.
