A family-owned business, Paiste prides itself in the company’s desire to continually create new sounds with cymbals, gongs and bronze percussion instruments to serve the creative needs of today’s drummers and percussionists.
A blend of creative imagination and the inventive spirit of the musical instrument maker is what embodies the foundation of Paiste’s search for new musical sound. The spark that continually invigorates this search is music itself, in all its beauty, complexity and seemingly never-ending capacity for new ways of artistic expression.
Paiste believes that the secrets to creating intriguing new sounds are extensive experiences, a deep knowledge about sound and alloys, painstaking craftsmanship and intensive experimentation. The company meticulously researches and thoroughly executes its creations—never creating a cymbal by accident—resulting in an exceptionally consistent line of products, from cymbals to gongs and other bronze percussion instruments.
Paiste’s cymbal program always reflects the current state of music—music is incredibly diverse and ever-changing, and today’s music mixes and matches styles, borrows freely from historical periods and continues to integrate international music styles. The modern drummer no longer limits him or herself to any one particular style.
The company’s cymbal-making program is designed to keep up with these trends. In short, Paiste works hard to make their cymbals do more to satisfy today’s drummers and percussionists.
