For thousands of years gongs have played a vital role in religious and secular music in Asian cultures. Gongs can have a powerful sound; when played sensitively they have the variety to evoke any of the five elements. Gongs may also be used to begin and end meditation or healing treatments.
When played, the gong player first warms up by hitting the gong gently around a circle outside the center of the gong. This starts the gong vibrating.Then when you hit the center it creates a loud sound that continues ringing softer and softer until it stops vibrating.
Our gong is made from hand hammered brass, features a graceful design and rich, full sound. A delightful addition to any room as it is both beautiful and functional. Stands available separately.
