A beautiful and brilliant sounding instrument, this 47-inch wind gong produces an amazing rush of musical overtones. The gong's presence quickly becomes the focus of any indoor or outdoor space, and their sound is both exhilarating and calming at the same time. The shimmering sound of wind gongs has rich traditional roots in meditation and ceremony.
Wind gongs are basically a large and very flat bell. When played with a padded mallet they produce a complex wave of musical tones. When struck with a drumstick they sound more like the bells in a large clock.
Our wind gongs are made with traditional methods by artisans in China. They are a bronze alloy which is roughly 80% copper and 20% tin. The crafting process is a mixture of hand hammering and working the bronze on a lathe while carefully heating and cooling the metal. The result is a spectacular sounding, very unique musical instrument. Wind gongs are available in a range of sizes, with each size having its own distinct sound. Smaller sizes have a higher pitch and less power while the larger sizes are deeper, richer, and ring with more power and sustain.
Accessories Included: Perfectly matched beater.
