The Paiste Colorsound 900 China has a unique, dark tonal quality. The explosive crash sound will cut through any setting and add a complex trashy wash with a medium sustain. It’s perfect for to punctuate those accents that just can’t be ignored. 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.

TAMA Imperial Star IP62H6N 6-PieceWith nearly 40 years of drum building experience, TAMA knows what drummers really want. With this in mind we sought out to design an affordable yet durable kit that retained many high-end features you'll find in our Silverstar, Superstar, and Starclassic lines. What we came up with was Imperialstar. Every aspect of the modern drum kit was exhaustively examined, reexamined, and then improved before it was accepted as part of the Imperialstar design.
The Talman Bass sports a cool retro look with a sound that will inspire players of all ages.
The TMB100 gets back to basics and delivers a one-two punch by combining a passive P/J pickup configuration with a retro Ibanez body design for a bass that delivers in looks and sound. Features include a Mahogany body for a warm, punchy tone, a Maple neck with Rosewood fretboard, a Standard bridge and a tortoise shell pickguard to complete the classic vibe. Electronics consist of an Ibanez DXP neck pickup and a DXJ bridge pickup for that rich, vintage sound and a Custom 2-band active EQ for increased tonal options.
Key FeaturesDie cast tuners The diecast tuners on the Action series basses provide stability and fine tuning. Canadian Hard Maple Neck Due to its stiffness and therefore stability, hard maple has become the main wood for building bass necks, especially Bolt-On neck joints.
