What cymbals match the sound of PAISTE COLOR SOUND 5


Junior Member
Hey, I have a 16" color sound 5 crash, and I was wondering what cymbal sets match that sound. I would like a splash (10") and another crash (14"/16").
Any type that fit's that sound.

For britpop kinda music, so no metal stuff (like paiste black alpha)

I'd keep a look out for Paiste 2000 Colorsound cymbals or even non-colorsound 2000 cymbals. The 2000s were made in 3 types... "regular" "Sound Reflections" and "Colorsound" of various colors. Though they have been discontinued for many years now, they show up from time to time on ebay and craigslist, etc.
