Back a few decades ago, Paiste made many of their gongs with the traditional Chinese Tai Loi Symbols, which can be translated to English as "The Bad will depart, the Good shall arrive" or more simply, "Happiness Has Arrived."
As Paiste and the Gong Community has grown, Paiste still produces some gongs with the Tai Loi Symbols, to honor that tradition as well as satisfy the gong players who prefer that affirmation on their instrument.
Paiste still makes these, but does not produce as many of symphonic gongs with Tai Loi symbols on them now. Their availability varies. It is best to call or email us to see about the size you would want.
