Alpha Cymbals have been well known for their first-class sound and fair prices since 1992, and feature professional character that fulfills high demands in quality and function. ColorSound is a proprietary coating for cymbals invented and pioneered by Paiste in the 1980s, which optimizes the effect of a coating on cymbal sound and is extremely durable. The Colorsound Coating adds bite to the attack, focuses the overtones and adds raw presence to the overall sound character.
