Paiste first introduced colour-coated cymbals with Color Sound 5 in 1984 as a means for artistic expression during the time period when popular music became visual in television music videos. Later, in the 1990s, VISIONs made an appearance and in recent years certain Artist Inspiration models have featured coloured coating – Stewart Copeland’s Blue Bell Ride, Aquiles Priester’s Giga Bell Ride and Danny Carey’s Dry Heavy Ride.
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.
