Colour and Sound

If you want a cymbal set that sounds amazing but looks good too you’ve come to the right place. The Paiste 900 ColorSound Cymbal Pack features a sonically matched set of cymbals that will ensure you don’t just sound good but that you look great too. Combining an eye-catching vibrant red translucent finish with warm, full tone, these cymbals are ideal for live and studio settings.

Paiste 900 Color Sound Red Cymbal Pack Configuration:

  • 14” Hi-Hats
  • 17” Crash
  • 19” Crash
  • 20” Ride

Colorsound Hi-Hats

This Paiste Colorsound set features a pair of 14” hi-hats. Consisting of a medium top and heavy bottom the color sound hi-hats offer a well-balanced, responsive feel. The compact, closed stick sound offers a short, sharp articulation, while playing the hats open provides a robust, full-bodied sound. The chick is clear, warm and well-defined. With a similar sound to the standard 900 series, these hi-hats have a slightly drier tone with a shortened sustain thanks to the colour coating. The result is a set of hats with a focused attack that are fairly lively sounding with an overall relatively bright, warm clarity to their tone. They’re articulate and controllable making them ideal for a wide range of musical styles and situations.

Colorsound Crashes

This Paiste cymbal pack features two crashes; a 17” and a 19”. These sizes have been specifically selected because of their complementary tonal characteristics. They sit well together to create a balanced tone palette for your kit set up. Both cymbals have a medium weight which makes for a well-balanced, responsive feel. They offer a washy stick sound and open up quickly presenting a bursting attack filled with bright, full-bodied, warm overtones. The 19” is slightly darker sounding than the 17” and the two complement each other well offering a variety of tone. The color sound crashes have a medium sustain that is subdued slightly as a result of the red colour coating. Overall these crashes offer a superbly focused, full sounding, impactful tone perfect for accenting and emphasising music.

The gentle top end of the Paiste colour sound crashes means that they are superb for studio situations, as well as live settings. They aren’t overly harsh or piercing which can lead to excessive clipping and spillage issues in the studio. Instead, they offer a robust, warmth that punches through without becoming overpowering. Overall, they offer a superbly versatile sound that not only works well between the two sizes but would be a great addition to any cymbal set up whether gigging or recording.

Colorsound Ride

The last piece of this beautiful cymbal pack is the Paiste 20” Colorsound Ride. This ride has a medium-heavy weight which, as with the other cymbals in this set, provides an even, balanced feel. The 20” Paiste ride offers a clear pinging stick articulation that blends into a long sustain of even, warm wash. The result is an overall fairly bright response with a full-bodied sound filled with warm undertones. Playing the edge of the ride offers a weighty, gong-like crash tone, while the integrated bell has a pronounced, chunky cutting character, perfect for accents. In keeping with the cymbal set, this ride has a versatility to its sound that would slot easily into a wide range of music styles.

Style and Substance

The coating of the Paiste Colorsound 900 cymbals provides a luminious translucent finish. The transparency of the coating preserves the natural aesthetic of the cymbals, allowing the lathed grooves and expert hand hammering to shine through. The overall look is one of vibrancy and radiance for a strikingly beautiful appearance. The coating has been specifically designed to be super durable ensuring it won’t ever crack, chip or peel away from the cymbals. No matter how hard you hit, this coating will stay put!

Don’t be fooled, this set of cymbals is not just a gimmicky pack that look cool but sound rubbish. Paiste have done thorough research to ensure the coloursound series not only looks stunning but sounds amazing too. They’re striking appearance is matched by their brilliantly versatile sound. You may be attracted to these cymbals by the colour, but you’ll continue to use them because of the sound.

Color Sound 900

The Paiste Colorsound 900 Series was first introduced as Colorsound 5 in 1984. The introduction and increase in popularity of music videos resulted in a need for musicians to express themselves visually as well as sonically. Paiste introduced the Color Sound series allowing musicians to do just that, by creating an impressive aesthetic without jeopardising the overall sound of the cymbals. The next incarnation of colour sound came in the form of the VISIONS series in the 1990s. Throughout this time Paiste have continued to use the colour coating process as a custom order option and in various artist models, an example of which is Stewart Copeland’s Blue Bell Ride.

Colorsound 900 is the latest incarnation in the colour cymbal range. Based on the cymbals in the standard 900 series, the Paiste colour sound cymbals have the same sound and function as the 900 series but have a slightly drier tone thanks to the finish. The colour coating of the Colorsound range works to slightly shorten the sustain which results in a more focused attack. Made from the same bronze as the legendary Paiste 2002 series, these cymbals offer a warm, full, focused tone with a muted brilliance, making them ideal for both live and studio situations.

Following extensive R&D to create the most stunning, beautiful finishes, Paiste use luminous translucent colours which preserve the natural appearance of the grooves and hammer marks while presenting a vibrantly radiant appearance. The result is an exceedingly tough and durable finish that won't chip, crack or peel.  

The Paiste Color Sound Series is available in black, red, blue and purple.


If you want an eye-catching cymbal pack that offers an extremely versatile tone that will serve you well in both live and studio situations, the Paiste Colorsound 900 set is the one for you. With a beautifully striking translucent red finish and a well-rounded, warm, full tone, this Paiste cymbal set brilliantly combines style and substance to ensure your sound is as impressive as these cymbals look. A superb choice for drummers of all styles that want to make an impression with both their aesthetic and their sound.
