A magnificent range of medium and high tones is derived from this small 56 cm Dance Gong. Played with large and well balanced mallet, we can play on this gong like a drum and a gong simultaneously. This gong plays best as a handheld and is easy and light to carry, weighing only 4 kilograms. The Gong is well suited for outdoor ceremonies. it has a special wooden handle on the rope which makes it easy on the hand when held for long periods of time. As this Gong is crafted with a tight surface it does not splash easily! One of our best selling gongs.
All of our Gongs are handmade from silver nickel alloy and bear the traces and marks of the maker… We do not wish to produce gongs like in the cosmetic industry with perfect skin and a completely unnatural look. We do understand that people have an idea of perfection based on not seeing any trace of the biography of the piece, but to us this is simply an expression of our highly artificial world, the perfect surface of almost everything, giving the mere surface much more importance than the inside values, the traces of work, of labour, of pain and maturity. We wish to guide our players into the wide and vast dimensions behind the surface to realize that what matters in the Gong is the Sound… not the look!!
