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):

The djembe originated in West Africa. While many myths and legends surround of its creation, we can definitely say, historically, that the Djembe was being played in the Mali empire in the 12th century.
