Paiste Mikrophonie Symphonic Gongs have a slightly raised surface with a harmonic and universal sound structure. The fundamental note of the gong is balanced with the instrument's complex overtones. A good starting point for a gong collection, the Symphonic contains even proportions of various gong characteristics, which can be brought forth using different mallets and striking points. The Mikrophonie version was originally created for the late German composer Karlheinz Stockhausen who requested a specially made model that is thinner and more responsive than the standard 60" Symphonic Gong. It was used in his 1964 composition, Mikrophonie I.
