Paiste Color Sound 900 18-Inch Crash Ride Cymbal - Purple Overview :
Paiste first pioneered color coated cymbals with COLORSOUND 5
in 1984 as a means for artistic expression during the time period when
popular music became visual in music videos on television. In the 1990s
VISIONS made an appearance, and in recent years certain Artist
Inspiration models feature color coating - Stewart Copeland's Blue Bell
Ride, Aquiles Priester's Giga Bell Ride and Danny Carey's Dry Heavy
Ride. Throughout, the Color Sound finish was available for custom
orders, including cymbals featured by international top artists Joey
Jordison, Tico Torres and Paul Bostaph. With Color Sound 900 Paiste
launches the latest incarnation in the color cymbal saga.
Sound Character: Medium bright, full-bodied with warm undertones. Wide range, clean mix. Balanced, responsive feel. Full, round crash sound with punch for universal applications.
While Color Sound 900 feature essentially the same sound and function as the 900 Series, the color coating causes a slightly drier sound, shortens the sustain a bit, and results in a more focused attack.
