This listing includes a traditional Chinese gong mallet.
The Heng Gong has a deeper rim than other Chinese Gongs, and is a bit thicker in the bronze, but it is fully lathed like the Wind Gong. This creates a complex and marvelous mixture of sounds.
The smaller Hengs can have a bell-like purity to their tone when played with certain mallets, while the larger Hengs, 26" and above, are like giant lasers of sound, with focused harmonics and great presence. They are prized by musicians and sound healers.
