Introduction: 1978 based on serial numbers
Discontinued: 1991 based on serial numbers
Background:

  • Sound creation is the result of a deep understanding of sounds and vibrations, which comes from a lifetime of work and experience in sound making.

Sound creation is an entirely new collection of individual cymbal sounds which has unmatched variety in pitch, texture, color and feeling.
These sounds cooperate with the drummer in his efforts to express himself in music and thereby stimulate musical creativity.
The name on each Sound Creation cymbal describes the sound, type, feeling and character for which it was created. (1)

  • The Paiste Sound Creation Collection has been developed for drummers who attach great importance to extraordinary sounds.

That is why there is another concept behind Sound Creation: There is no general sound character of the line, as it is a collection of absolutely individual sounds.
Sound color, type and overall feeling of every Sound Creation cymbal is defined by its name. Cymbals with the specification "New Dimension" are special further developments intensifying existing sounds. (4)

  • Sound Creation is the name given to this collection of individual cymbal sounds, describing their remarkable characteristics.

They possess an extraordinary variety of pitch, texture, color and feeling. Words on paper can never do them justice. You have to experience them. (5)
