I have actually only owned TWO other of these 3000 RUDE 18s"! They're pretty damn hard to find! 

They definitely DEFINE an era!! 

Offered up for your immense pleasure is this No Longer Made and Hard to Find 1988 RED LABEL PAISTE 3000 RUDE 18" Crash/Ride that is in EXCELLENT Condition. Check out the pictures!! There are 

NO

Nicks, cracks, dents, or dings on this RARE 18"! It's in GREAT SHAPE with a lovely and deep golden brown patina that has befriended it around the edges - it looks awesome. Like baked.  A gorgeous cymbal with strong logos! 

As you can see this 18" is fully unlathed and hammered in that classic Rude vibe!!! With the hallmark 80s 3000 Red Label! 

 

The weight is 1741 grams.

As many of you know, Paiste created the RUDE series in 1980/81 to quench the thirst of rock and punk players (although there were a few jazz enthusiasts who used them too), then they merged it with the 3000 line in '86, and it has since diverged again.  The unlathed and heavily hammered Rudes offered an unprecedented explosive cut and sustain that held up both sonically and structurally in loud volume settings. The Rude series went through many logo changes but always kept it's raw bell, unlathed surface, and talent for explosive attack and maximum projection. 

And this no longer made Paiste 3000 RUDE 18" Crash/Ride is no exception. The tone is extremely FULL and semi-dark but not as clean as a standard 2002. It's definitely more Raw in both appearance and sound. More complex. The sustain lasts for weeks and it cuts straight to the back of the room. 

This is a no brainer for Rock, punk, funk, fusion and anytime you need a GIANT Full Paiste 18" Crash tone that is slightly darker and beefier than a 2002. And if you ride on this monster (and you should) you get a beautiful wall of White Noise a la Alex Van Halen or the Foo Fighters. 

$300 for the modern "RE-ISSUE?"   Why not get the RARE RED LABEL Original and SAVE money! 

THIS 3000 RUDE is in great condition and sounds BEASTLY! 

So do yourself a favor and grab this RARE 1988 RED LABEL 18" Paiste 3000 Rude Crash Ride, and HANG ON TO IT!!!
