The Chinese people have used gongs as a ritual instrument for thousands of years. The Chau gong adds depth and a special percussion effect to any music. The deep tones clear the air before special events.
This gong is crafted from one cast piece, hand-hammered using century-old traditions. The Chau Gong is often used to announce the arrival of a government official, warning people to clear the street, much as a police siren is used today.
The vibrations can be felt without even touching the gong, physically effecting the whole body as the vibrations penetrate our entire being. The sound is intriguing for people with and without special needs. When the gong is struck with a gap between strikes, it creates a relaxed, meditative energy to whoever hears it.
This gong is made of bronze.
It is available in two sizes:
- 70cm diameter
- 40cm diameter
The 70cm Chau gong comes with a black powder-coated steel stand.
