The Royal Blue Gong Stand is an environmentally conscious gong stand. We stepped in before the recycling of metal, or the junkyarding of it, and upcycled. We kept a bunch of metal from going to the scrapper. Each stand is constructed from two roll bars that we bought from a supplier to jeeps and dune buggies. The paint we waited for at a local car paint biz to have some extra from a batch that went on a modern Mustang. We kept this cool blue from being tossed out!
Gong Stand Measurements:
Inside Length: 39"
Inside Height (From Hook to Bar): 37"

The 32" Atlantis Gong is a deep and scintillating gong. Great for sound healing, its many moods, depending on how you play it, and with what mallets, will provide you years of experimentation and magic.
People say that Plato spoke of Atlantis, he being a fulcrum between that Ancient World and our more recent one. We imagine this is some of what he had to say below.
"Many great and wonderful deeds are recorded of your state [Athens] in our [the Egyptian's] histories.
"But one of them exceeds all the rest in greatness and valor. For these histories tell of a mighty power Atlantis which unprovoked made an expedition against the whole of Europe and Asia, and to which your city put an end. This power came forth out of the Atlantic Ocean, for in those days the Atlantic was navigable; and there was an island situated in front of the straits which are by you called the Pillars of Herakles; the island was larger than Libya and Asia put together, and was the way to other islands, and from these you might pass to the whole of the opposite continent which surrounded the true ocean; for this sea which is within the Straits of Herakles is only a harbor, having a narrow entrance, but that other is a real sea, and the surrounding land may be most truly called a boundless continent.
"Now in this island of Atlantis there was a great and wonderful empire which had rule over the whole island and several others, and over parts of the continent, and, furthermore, the men of Atlantis had subjected the parts of Libya [Africa] within the columns of Herakles as far as Aigyptos (Egypt), and of Europe as far as Italy."
The 32" Chau Gong is an iconic Chinese gong. Most people recognize it immediately, whether they remember seeing it somewhere this lifetime, or in a previous one. Historically in China, this gong was used by royals and those with temporal power to announce and declare themselves, as well as celebrate good fortune, or at least herald it in.
Made of bronze, the Chau Gong comes out of the oven completely dark-colored, like the outer ring and bullseye, then the gong makers skillfully lathe off the dark part to reveal the shiny ring in the center. They do this on the front and back. This gong has a rim on its outer edge, and that is where the two holes are drilled that a rope can be put through to hang the gong.
The 32" Chocolate Drop Gong has deep tones and long sustain, thanks to the amount of bronze that is used. These sounds are made more mystical and complex by the extra bit of higher notes at the end. These large gongs are a delightful discovery for the gong player.
The Chocolate Drop Gong is similar to the Chau Gong. In fact, it is basically a Chau Gong with the outer dark ring lathed off. This makes the Chocolate Drop Gong not only look brighter than the Chau Gong, it can make it sound brighter too.
Can the 32" Mother Tesla Gong envelop you with an overwhelming rush of emotion and healing?
Yes it can.
Once she is tapped, she doesn't stop. This gong resonates on and on and on. Keep striking her and will this hard headed and bodied woman crash?
Sound builds upon sound with intense bass pulsing through her core. This is not lust. This is love. Not the free love of New Age, but the enduring love of the Bass Age. She has always loved you. Get ready to love her back!
The 32" Wind Gong is a bright, crashing gong that produces a deep tone on first strike and then builds in volume and vibration. As their name would suggest, these gongs produce a "whooshing" series of overtones. When these bronze frisbees come out of the casting process, they have a completely dark finish. They are then lathed and the dark finish disappears to reveal the shiny face of the wind gong.
This gong can be played with a variety of mallets to produce a wide range of overtones. The larger the wind gong, the wider the space between the initial beating of the gong and the release of the overtones. The 32" Wind Gong has a lot of room for experimentation. When played with a large, soft mallet, it will give you a full range of sounds for your therapy space or percussion set-up.
