Crotales

Tuned Percussion - Crotales

Crotales are offered individually or in 1, 2 or 2½ octave sets tuned chromatically to 442Hz (other tunings are available by custom order). Paiste's tuning system insures these instruments with perfect pitch. We offer 1, 2 or 2½ octave octave stands for these instruments. To facilitate playing chromatically tuned sets, we have developed a damper system for all our crotales set stands. Crotales (C6-F8) are traditional Cymbal Antiques utilized by composers since the 19th century. Made from CuSn20 bronze, they produce a clear, pure, even traditional sound.
