Click to enlarge image(s)
Tibetan Prayer Gong is made of bronze and is approximately 11.5 inches in diameter. A perfectly matched beater (GMMB9) is included.
This gong has a rich, full sound with great resonance and sustain. As is characteristic of gongs having the raised boss or nipple, they are designed to produce more of a clear resonant tone with much less "shimmer" than other gongs, and two distinct sounds depending on whether they are struck on the boss or next to it.
The entire face is embossed with Auspicious Buddhist Symbols and features a raised boss, or nipple, in the center similar to a bao gong. There are several designs and you may get one of a kind.
Whatever the design, you will love the antiqued finish and the great sound.
Approximate dimensions: 11.5 inch diameter x 2.25 inch depth.
Actual instrument weight is approximately 3.25 lbs.
