Bao Gongs

The Chinese Bao Gong is reminiscent of the gongs made in other Southeast Asian cultures like Thailand, Java and similar, thanks to the center raised portion, known as a bell or a nipple.

This is the part of the gong that you strike for its clear tone.

Chinese Bao gongs are sometimes thicker and heavier than their fellow nations' versions, as they are not trying to tune them to specific notes, like the ones in gamelan orchestras or Thai tuned gongs.

They convey great clear tones and are a nice sonic tonic for ears in search of clarity.
