Pasite Expands Twenty and Rude Series
First introduced in 2007 in a concept proving and ground breaking essential configuration, the Twenty assortment now undergoes a major expansion, as the company completes an ambitious development process in response to world-wide requests by drummers and percussionists for additional models in the critically acclaimed series.
As part of the greatly expanded selection, additional sizes in all the existing main-stream models are now offered, which include the Ride in 21″, the Crash in 17″, 19″ and 20″, the Hi-Hat in 12″ and 15″, the Splash in 8″ and 12″, and the China in 20″. A new section of lighter models is added to the assortment, which consists of the Light Ride in 20″ and 22″, the Thin Crash in 16″, 17″ and 18″, and the Light Hats in 14″. Two new China Models round out the expansion, the Mini China in 8″, 10″ and 12″, and the Thin China in 14″, 16″ and 18″.
Drum! Magazine is reporting that Paiste is also expanding their Rude line of cymbals.
With the RUDE Wild Hats in 14″ size, Paiste now offers a RUDE version of the recently introduced 2002 Wild Hats. Its wild, metallic, and harsh overall character, roaring open sound, fast attack with merciless shatter, and tight, barking chick sound makes it ideal for today’s aggressive music styles. The RUDE Novo China in 18″ and 20″ sizes (a Paiste innovation) features a unique china shape that makes both the bell and downward turned china edge accessible at once. It’s sound is bright and silky with a metallic character and a sizzling deeply layered china timbre that makes it a cross between a china and a crash. And,responding to the general trend for cymbals in larger sizes, Paiste finally re-launches the RUDE China in 20″ size. This is a dark, raw, extremely loud and nasty China. RUDE cymbals are made by hand in Switzerland.
