This listing includes a traditional Chinese gong mallet.
The White Gong has a rim like a Chau Gong but is also fully lathed like a Wind gong. As expected, the White Gong has qualities of both these traditional Chinese gongs. The full lathing creates a bright, airy sound with a shiny splash, but the rim focuses that splash, and gives clarity to the overall sound.
If the Wind Gong is a soprano, the White Gong is an alto. Larger White gongs, 22" in diameter and bigger, can be played gently and will create a tone that is both musical and meditative.
The 12" White Gong, or Aotearoa gong, at the dawn of a new time (Ao) with a clear, bright tone (tea) leaving a joyous, long-lasting (roa) delight.
As the migratory waka travelled to New Zealand on the great Magellenic Cloud they sounded this gong and woke the people from slumber. Hence New Zealand is now a happy nation of rolling green and white and blue.
And Aotearoa is the widely known and accepted Māori name for New Zealand. Since the 1990s it has been the custom to sing New Zealand's national anthem, "Gong Defend New Zealand" in both Māori and English, which has exposed the term Aotearoa to a wider audience.

The 20" White Gong loves Missus Mallethead, who used to be camera shy. Gongs need the female touch.
Did you know that when gongs that are over 48" are made, the gong makers don't even allow women on the gong making floor?!! It's true. It is a tradition going back hundreds of years. A lot has to do with the danger and attention required. You need at least three gong makers, working in harmony, on a gong that is 48".
So big gongs really need a female touch, but sometimes all the gongs, not just the giant ones, they need some female attention and loving, and whitish Missus Mallethead has become their de facto Metal Wet Nurse. Like a Soft Rock Gong version of Ripley in Aliens: Resurrection, Missus Mallethead makes all the gongs feel better and sound better, without hurting their feelings.
The 22" White Gong

It awakens thoughts of the mythical White Unicorn, which some say is the love child of a horse and a narwhal. I say it's an evolved narwhal as we walking bodies evolved from our sea ancestry.
The White gong can open communication with our ancient roots! It's a gong worth exploring. Because magic and unicorns are real... ... at Gongs Unlimited.
