Paiste Colorsound 900 14" Hi Hat Cymbal Blue - Pair
Colorsound 900 Hi Hat Cymbal Blue 14 in. Pair
The Paiste Colorsound 900 Hi-Hats have a bright, warm tonal quality with a balanced, responsive feel. These are perhaps the most versatile hi-hats in the Colorsound series because they suited for medium low to loud volume settings. With a warm, defined chick and a compact stick sound, these articulate hats are controllable and work well in almost any musical situation. 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.
