OVERVIEW

A flexible and versatile series that adds unique visuals to your setup.

The Paiste Colorsound 900 Crash has a solid, medium-bright, full-bodied sound with warm undertones. It’s well-balanced and responsive with a full, round crash sound perfect for a variety of musical genres and settings.

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.

Color Sound 900 cymbals are based on the range of models in the concurrently launched 900 Series. While they feature essentially corresponding sound and function, the color coating causes a slightly drier sound, shortens the sustain a bit, and results in a more focused attack. Significantly, the same flexibility and giving feel as in the 900 Series is present.

Extensive research and design efforts have resulted in the most stunningly beautiful finishes: luminous translucent colors preserve the natural appearance of grooves and hammer marks and present a vibrantly radiant appearance. Notably, decades of experience have proven the Color Sound finish to be exceedingly tough and durable - the finish will not ever crack, chip or peel.

FEATURES
  • Hybrid hammering technique for dark, musical tonal quality
  • Medium low to loud volume
  • Lively intensity with a washy stick sound and medium sustain
  • Finish will never crack, chip or peel

Comments about Paiste Colorsound 900 Crash Cymbal Black:

The current Color Sounds (900) have wider sonic spread than previous Color Sounds- they sound better. However, the bell is less "separate," less pingy, and more of a clangy/gongy sound (not as useful as previous models.
The new black Color Sounds have a paint flaw: they look black under low light (store), but in sunlight, or LED stage lights, the paint goes transparent & rainbowy- not matching older Color Sounds. It looks bad. Paiste was not helpful when contacted about this issue.
