This listing includes the gong and a gong cover. The mallet is not included.
Note: Creating Titanium Gongs is an intensive creative process. The front is created with a particular design in mind, but the back may have markings or different coloring, which are a random and natural part of the gongmaking and firing process. This doesn't affect the sound of this beautiful gong. See the video (from 3:36) and additional photos for a closer view of the back.
Martin Bläse's 22" Blue Planet Gong is a beautiful, one of a kind work of beauty and power. It is a titanium sculpture of both sound and vision. The blue coloration is offset by the heat marks which create a unique rainbow effect.
Like our big, beautiful blue planet, this gong will not last forever. Enjoy its splendor and beauty while it remains. Respect it. Treasure it!
