    Hey Blink, they are the Vader line from Paiste. They make crash, ride, and hi-hats in black and red. Chinas in red( I have seen 1 in blue though), and splashes in yellow, green, and blue. Check out E-bay. They are on there all the time.

    They were called "Colorsound" models.
    This is directly from Wickipedia;

    COLORSOUND 5 series, professional CuSn8-cymbals, produced from appox. 1983 to 1986. Five colors were offered for visual appeal. Later the 400,500,900 and 2000 series were offered with the COLORSOUND option.

    VISIONS series, professional level; Both Signature Alloy and CuSn8 alloy cymbals, produced in the early mid 90s. Were treated with COLORSOUND process. Offered in Black only.

    I would classify colorsound as a semi-pro level.
    Along the line of the Alpha.
    You can generally tell the level by the price, and they are half the price of 2002s.
    But, i would consider them pro level for metal, where they are played hard and not for intricate sound like 2002s, Signature, or Masters.

    Time sure flies. Can't say I know much about specific lines of colored Paiste cymbals, but one does come to mind. The Stewart Copeland Rhythmatist was a signature with another layer of blue layered on top. I thought it was a funny idea and would never fly but the audio clips i'd heard of it were pleasing to my ear. Very dry, but still had a sweet tone to it. Great for anyone who has trouble getting their ride cymbal under control and ends up taping or moongelling them.
