How do you pronounce Paiste

How do you pronounce 'Paiste'?

- Kauko Paksula (c) 200

Taken from a posting on Rec.music.makers.percussion Usenet Newsgroup

Paiste..." is a family name from Estonia and this word (as many other words) is similar to Finnish.

The word means 'Shine' - Sunshine = auringon (sun) paiste (shine) in Finnish

The Paiste family had to go from Estonia to Germany and then to Switzerland because of the revolution and war in the 1910s.

But how to give advice for pronounciation?

Let's make it to parts: Pai & Ste. You say 'pai' just the same way you say 'pie' (apple pie). Your 'a' must be quite open, like 'car'

Then 'ste'... well like the beginning of stella or step and make it short.

I hope you could understand me anyway. And remember, when you say Paiste, the accent is on the beginning of the word. 'PAIste'

So Paiste...

This upsurge is great for manufacturers and the drum industry who have created a whole new marketplace for a whole new range of products. Some are genuine innovation, some are simply repackaging.


is 'Kids', 'Junior' or 'Student' merely a nice way of saying 'Budget', 'Cheapo' or 'Flimsy'?


With the rising commercial importance of junior drummers, their impressionable minds exposed to hero-endorser-worship through MTV and their uncanny ability for persistence; you WILL inevitably end up buying junior a drumset and you really have no choice about it.

Drumdojo editorial note

Having built drums of many shapes and sizes, I'm interested to see how 'Molecules' deal with the 'basketball 'ping" sound that comes from a standing wave in a spheroid shape.
