The Paiste Philosophy
The principle of our family business is to continually create new sound with cymbals, gongs, and bronze percussion instruments according to the creative needs of drummers and percussionists.
The foundation of this search for musical sound is the successful combination of the musician’s creative imagination of musicians and the inventive spirit of the musical instrument maker. The spark that continually invigorates this search is music itself, in all its beauty, complexity, and seemingly never-ending capacity for new ways of expression. The relationship between us as sound makers, and drummers and percussionists as musicians, is the very intimate manifestation of this deep principle. This is our true purpose.
The secrets in creating sounds are life-long experience, a deep knowledge about sound and sounding alloys, painstaking craftsmanship, and intensive experimentation. We never get accidental results. We meticulously research and we thoroughly execute our creations. We guarantee consistency in sound qualities and sound color in every cymbal, percussive sound and gong we offer. Through these virtues we can offer a full range of unique and specific sounds, which respond to the musician’s personal wishes. We go on providing you with ever-new sound dimensions. We give you new possibilities to expand your sound spectrum and to creatively develop your individual musical expression. This helps you realize your musical dreams.
