The basic tones of the PAISTE Planet Gongs are octave frequencies of the earth, the moon, the planets and the sun. They thus resonate in harmony with the planetary rhythms and thus convey a clear aspect of the spherical harmonies that have been much quoted since antiquity.
The planetary basic tone is superficially present and with increasingly powerful play a broad spectrum of overtones is built up. The mysterious timbre conveys an unusual, unfathomable atmosphere. The type and location of the keystroke allow a variety of depths and highs to be played, as well as different colourings contained in the overall sound.
