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. 4 is a gong of many moods. It has a small deep center, surrounded by a hammered ring that is surrounded by a scraped ring and finally the slightly raised outer rim. The low fundamental note from the center remains focused and compact when played toward the center, but as you work outwards towards the rim the sound opens up to an eventual and controlled wash.
