> > Paiste welcomes a new artist

Paiste family is growing!

The world renowned Swiss cymbal maker Paiste is proud to welcome Mark “Lovestick” Falgren to its Artist Endorsement Program. Mark Falgren studied at the “Rhythmic Music Conservatory” in Copenhagen, Denmark. Back then he co-founded the Danish Soul-Pop-Newcomers Lukas Graham, who later achieved first notable international success with their single “Mama said”. In 2015/2016 the band  – it’s indeed a band and not a solo artist – conquered the charts in several countries with their single hit “7 Years”, peaking at no. 1 in Denmark, Italy, Austria, Belgium, and Sweden and at no. 2 on the Billboard Hot 100 in the US. As of July 2016, “7 Years” has over 480 million Spotify streams. For their latest sold-out tour in North America Mark Falgren chose a set of 2002s: 15” Sound Edge Hi-Hat, 18” Crash, 19” Crash, 22” Ride.
