See our selection Gongs from Ryan Shelledy here.Ryan Shelledy
is a professional gong maker in the US.
He utilizes both European and Asian gong making techniques to create unique, beautiful, one of a kind gongs and metal instruments. While the quantity of his instruments is limited, he spends as much time as necessary perfecting each one. There is nothing rushed with these instruments.
Ryan creates his instruments based on his own designs and experiments, but he also utilizes and incorporates other traditional motifs such as the Native American Zia Sun symbol. (He has received permission from the tribe to use it.) Ryan has been making instruments since 2011. Gongs Unlimited was one of the first stores to sell his instruments.
