Gongs of Thailand

Thailand has a tremendous tradition of gongs. They are made in different parts of the country, but they are similar in that the Thai gong makers focus more on the nipple gongs that provide clear unique tones versus the flatter Chinese gongs. People often like to get a few gongs from Thailand and play them together for beautiful melodies.

A few years ago some reporters followed route 2222 aka "Gong Highway" to see and hear what it was all about. Read all about it here.
