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...
