The Paiste CS 900 Heavy Ride 20″ Color Sound Series Black is part of the new colored cymbal range from Paiste. The Color Sound 900 Series contains cymbals crafted from 2002 Bronze (CuSn8) that deliver a combination of warmth, fullness and focus, thanks to hand hammered and hand lathed craftsmanship by master cymbalsmiths from Switzerland.
The Color Sound 900 Series provides an advanced sound at an affordable price. These cymbals produce a warm, full and focused sound with muted brilliance. Drummers will appreciate a flexible and giving feel when playing. A luminous, colored finish adorns each cymbal, thereby enhancing hammer marks and grooves to reflect a vibrant and radiant appearance.
This translucent finish is extremely tough and durable, making it highly resistant to cracks, chips and peeling. The colour coating causes the sound to be slightly drier, sustain to shorten and attack to be more focused (in comparison to the standard 900 Series).
The Color Sound 900 Heavy Ride is a powerful, cutting cymbal suitable for loud playing styles. This brilliant, sharp ride offers a wide range and clean mix with a heavy feel, massive bell and bright pronounced ping over a controlled, warm wash sound.
