B Stock Details: This specific Planetary Gong came to us with some visual issues. When we received it and opened the box to check it, we found some scuffing and scratch marks on the rim. This can happen during the shipping to us. The gong still sounds great, but it doesn't look 100% perfect, so we've discounted it just for you.
Note: The gong in the photo is not the exact gong you will receive, but an example of what a Paiste Synodic Moon Gong usually looks like. See the video and additional photos for specific details on this gong.
Paiste 24" Planetary Tuned Synodic Moon Gong (#PNL521)
Paiste Planetary Tuned Gongs are works of sonic mastery. The gong's flat, scraped surface meets a dark rim that flows back from the face creating a unique, beveled shape. They are hand-hammered from nickel silver in the European gong-making tradition. They are tuned to the orbits of the celestial bodies in our solar system. This one is tuned to the period of the Synodic Moon (29.531 days).
The lightweight metal, the unique shape, and the scraped face all combine to create an overall sound that is very clean and meditative, with rich, beautiful harmonics that expand over the deep fundamental tone.
