Color Sound 900 — experience new dimensions in visualized sound
Based on Paiste's 900 Series cymbals, the Color Sound 900 Series yields a slightly drier sound with shorter sustain. Otherwise, you can expect the same great sound and flexibility. The translucent color-coated finishes on these cymbals are positively radiant. They maintain the natural appearance of the cymbals, including the grooves and hammer marks. Best of all, the color coating is specially formulated to resist cracking, chipping, and peeling. Drummers here at Sweetwater use 900 Series cymbals to color-coordinate their cymbals with the rest of their drum kits, match their stage decor, and create a custom look under the lights.
Paiste — a history of visual expression
The Color Sound 900 Series isn't Paiste's first foray into color-coated cymbals. In 1984, Paiste stunned the industry with their Colorsound 5 Series. When the '90s rolled around, the Visions Series hit the scene. And more recently, Paiste unveiled their Artist Inspiration models, such as Stewart Copeland's Blue Bell Ride, Aquiles Priester's Giga Bell Ride, and Danny Carey's Dry Heavy Ride. Also, top drummers such as Joey Jordison, Tico Torres, and Paul Bostaph have custom color-coated cymbals.
