Paiste's Gongs: Symphonic, Planet, Sound Creation, Accent & Art Deco
Symphonic Gongs have a smooth sound and clear fundamental tone with dynamic, rich overtones. The Symphonics are the preferred gong for many sound therapists and yoga practitioners; and they are also beloved by percussionists & musicians. Their smooth and rich tones are wonderful & beautiful therapeutic tools and amazing musical instruments. The Symphonic gongs are available in widest variety of sizes, from 20" to the world's largest manufactured gong, 80 inches (6 feet, 8 inches)!!!
Planet gongs are essentially Symphonic gongs, which have been refined. Each Planet gong is refined so that it's fundamental tone is tuned to the frequency of the planet or celestial body it is name after. Planet gongs are also fantastic sound therapy tools & amazing musical instruments. As with Symphonics, Planets are popular among sound therapists, yoga practitioners as well as percussionists & musicians. Designed for Yoga and all forms of sound meditation.are our favorite gongs - period. We love all Paiste gongs, but Sound Creation gongs have an expressiveness that we love most. They are explosive; expressive; storm like; energetic; mysterious; other-worldly; melodic; dark; beautiful and very dynamic. The unique effects of the Sound Creation gongs is what makes them the gong that is most preferred by sound explorers. Plus, they are also completely effective for sound healing. Sound Creation Gongs have unique effects, including the bending of notes (ascending and descending), expressive swells, growling-like effects, choral-like singing tones (our favorite!) and more.
Deco Gongs - 7", 10", 13" GongsAs with all Paiste gongs, Deco gongs are produced by hand hammering. The Deco is essentially a miniature Symphonic Gong. Decos produce fascinating and exotic sounds. They are great in gong sets and for decoration.
