The Paiste CS 900 China 18″ Color Sound Series Red 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 China is an assertive cymbal suitable for exotic effects thanks to a washy stick sound over a complex, trashy foundation. This fairly dark, energetic cymbal produces an explosive, shattering crash and features a medium wide range and complex mix.
