Our Unlimited Body Bells are traditionally called Chung Cymbals. They're made of B20 bronze in the Chinese cymbal-making tradition. They are unique compared to other popular cymbals, with their large, pronounced bell and their flat brim, each comprising about half of the surface area of the instrument.
The bell portion of the instrument creates a deeper, cleaner tone, what you would imagine when you think of a bell-tone. The rim of the instrument opens the sound up to what you would traditionally think of when you imagine a cymbal. It has a broader range of overtones and harmonics with a crash building over the top.
We love the versatility brought by adding a set to a sound bath or sound healing. They're great hand-held instruments and perfect for waving over the body, washing it in a range of tones and harmonics.

We're talking about the history of tuning standards in music and sound therapy. 432 Hz and 440 Hz are the most well-known tuning standards for A4, but are there others? How did they come about? Is 432 Hz superior? Is 440 Hz bad? What frequency standard should you use for optimal healing? Let's talk about it!
We've just added a bunch of new flumis from the well-loved Bear of B Love Sacred Sound in the UK. We love these new mallets (see them here in our store). They're made of a unique silicone composition and field tested by professionals. The come in a range of sizes for a wide swath of sonic textures on many sizes and styles of gongs. They're easy to clean and easy to use.
