28" Pholus Gong (#NMQ814)
Each handmade Oetken Gong has its own individual range of tonality and feel, all while retaining the quality of the classic style. Although Broder Oetken is well known as one of the current gongmasters in the world, he says he is constantly developing, honing, and perfecting his gongmaking process. Like his mentor, Walter Meyer, he intends to pass his knowledge to his apprentices to ensure that this rare handicraft continues.
The gong is named for Pholus, the wise centaur and friend of Hercules from Greek mythology. It's also an planetoid that lives in the outer Solar System.
