Manufacturing in several countries around the world, the principle of the Paiste family business is to continually create new sounds with cymbals, sounds, gongs, and bronze percussion instruments according to the creative needs of drummers and percussionists.
Paiste produce cymbals today the same way they have for over half a century. Their manufacturing philosophy is simple: only a human being has the intuition and abilities to create superior musical instruments.
Paiste allow the use of mechanical devices only where they remove strenuous labor from the instrument artisans, allowing them to concentrate their talents and energy on creating instruments of the highest sound quality and consistency. Any automation removing human control from the manufacturing process is strictly forbidden, as automation is counterproductive to a natural sound and their desire for top quality.
