Gong Mallet Recommendations from Gus Kund


by Max Holmquist January 15, 2020

The world of gongs and gong accessories is a watercolor sunset painting. There are many colors and tones to absorb and it can be overwhelming figuring out what's right for you. We offer a technicolor rainbow of gong and mallet options. Each combination brings something new and unique to the table. So where do you start?

Our Unlimited friend and patron Gus Kund is a gong and percussion aficionado. We love his gong videos, so we asked him to offer his take on some of the mallets we offer. He put together a great video explaining some of the finer details of gong mallets. We hope it helps you on your gong mallet journey.

Watch as he paints a happy little sunset of gong mallet recommendations just for you (and check out our time stamps with mallet links below):
