Paiste 28" Bronze Gong No. 8 (#JPX197)
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 design of the Paiste Bronze Gong No. 8, with its concentric, textured ridges is a completely new gong design from Paiste. Playing this gong will be a new exciting adventure for even the most experienced gong player. These gongs maintain a deep, focused fundamental when played at the center but have great potential for finding new sonic layers with all kinds of mallets.
