Meinl’s Wu Xing line of gongs are handmade in Germany. These gongs combine Europe’s gong making tradition with the history of Asia’s gong tradition. They are finely tuned to create a greater frequency range, producing complex overtones and beautiful harmonies within these tones. Meinl’s gong makers make sure these symphonic style gongs will speak from a soft whisper to a deep roar.
The name Wu Xing refers to a Chinese concept that translates to a concept of five elements of life. It is not the same as the Western concept of four elements (fire, earth, water, air) but has more to do with processes, cycles and chi (energy). Wu Xing, or the Five Elements, is used in Chinese medicine, cosmology, feng shui, music, martial arts and now gong making.
