Title: Rare 10" Accent/Deco Gong
Post by: Michael Bettine on August 22, 2013, 02:54:02 am
This is a rare Gong that I own. It's a 10" Paiste Accent/deco Gong. The age is unknown.

1 - It's actually made like a small Symphonic Gong, with the vertical etching lines on the face. Neither of today’s Accent or deco Gongs have the face etching.

2 - It is stamped on the face, "Swiss Made." I've never seen another Paiste Gong stamped this way, as their Gongs are all made at their factory in Germany.

3 - It also sounds very different from my other Accent & Deco Gongs. The sound opens up more, and it has a very low pitch.

I also have a 13" one that looks exactly the same, but is not stamped as to where it was made.

Interesting, and it looks of some vintage. Thanks for sharing  :)
