The Chinese people have used gongs as a ritual instrument for thousands of years.
This gong is crafted from one cast piece, hand-hammered using century-old traditions. The unique sound of each style of gong is used to signify a different kind of event. The Wind Gong is traditionally used for healing and for the lion dance. It has a crescendo and sustained sound like the wind, hence the name.
The vibrations of the gong can be felt without even touching it, 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.
Made of bronze, the wind gong is traditionally played with a large soft mallet.
It is available in three sizes:
- 50cm diameter
- 70cm diameter
- 100cm diameter
The 70cm Wind gong comes with a black powder-coated steel stand.
