Paiste is a Swiss-based Estonian musical instrument manufacturing company who have been operating and making cymbals 1906. It is the world’s third largest manufacturer of cymbals, gongs, and metal percussion and can boast John Bonham amongst their endorsers. Paiste are are responsible for several cymbal-making innovations including the use of B8 bronze as a cymbal alloy, the sound edge hi-hat and unlathed cymbals.

Paiste first pioneered colour coated cymbals with Colour Sound 5 in 1984 as a means for artistic expression during the time period when popular music became visual in music videos on television. In recent years, certain Artist Inspiration models feature colour coating – Stewart Copeland’s Blue Bell Ride, Aquiles Priester’s Giga Bell Ride and Danny Carey’s Dry Heavy Ride. Throughout the years, the Colour Sound finish was available for custom orders, including cymbals featured by international top artists Joey Jordison, Tico Torres and Paul Bostaph. With Colour Sound 900, Paiste launches the latest incarnation in the colour cymbal saga.

Paiste 900 Colour Sound cymbals are based on the range of models in the concurrently launched 900 Series. The 900 Series is crafted from 2002 B8 Bronze, with its legendary warmth, brilliance and strength. In sophisticated hybrid manufacturing the cymbals are refined by Swiss craftsmanship with hand hammering and lathing. While the 900 Colour Sound cymbals feature essentially corresponding sound and function, the colour 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 colours preserve the natural appearance of grooves and hammer marks and present a vibrantly radiant appearance. Notably, decades of experience have proven the Paiste 900 Colour Sound finish to be exceedingly tough and durable – the finish will not ever crack, chip or peel.
