Introduced earlier this year at NAMM, Paiste's Color Sound 900 cymbals are made of CuSn8 Bronze alloy, also known as '2002 Bronze'.

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 has launched the latest incarnation in the color cymbal saga. Available colors include black, red, blue and purple.
