Note: Each one of these Oetken Water Gongs is unique. The photo we used is an example of how each one usually looks, but designs may vary. Please review each video for more details on each gong before choosing. Once each gong has sold, we won't get another exactly like it, but we will eventually get more of that size and style.

Play or listen to an Oetken Water Gong up close and you cannot help but experience the energy of the element in your mind and body. Your cells will become aware of their liquid, you will see images from your mind's eye of various types of water. You will be inspired and remedied by the sound and by water....
Water, as well as being an elemental life force, is an experience of sound with extreme polarities, ranging from soft bell-like trickling to violent crashing waves. Natural and awe-inspiring in its strength, water is a powerful earth component. This particular gong is an homage to the strength and sound of this important element.
When played softly, the vibrations flow mystically in a swirling soothing manner, bubbling and cleansing just as water does, creating a calm, winding soundscape. If the gong is struck swiftly a harmonic oceanic wash rushes outward with an immense dynamic feel.
Broder Oetken handmade the Water Gong to be based off of the gong of the same name created by Walter Meyer (Oetken's master during his apprenticeship with Paiste).
