Paiste Bronze Gongs are works of sonic mastery. They are hand-hammered from CuSn8 Bronze- 92% copper and 8% tin - in the European gong-making tradition. Bronze Gongs provide an abundant spectrum of frequencies and harmonics. They are individual, versatile, and spirited.
When the sound of Paiste’s bronze gongs is compared to the same size nickel silver instruments, the bronze ones generally present a lower fundamental note, warmer character, and a more voluminous sound.
Due to the molecular property of bronze, these gongs will change more noticeably over time than their nickel-silver counterparts. The tension release that comes from playing as well as the natural aging of the metal create an evolution of each Paiste Bronze Gong in league with the influence of the gong player.
The Paiste Bronze Gong No. 0 is charismatic and full in sound. Made similarly to the Paiste Sound Creation #3 Earth Gongs, the front of the gong is not scraped and there may sometimes be brighter specks in the dark metal.
Sometimes through the process of hand hammering and heating, some speckles remain. These markings are not signs of low quality or unintentional imperfection; they are indicative of the artisanal handmade process of Paiste Gong-making.
