Wuhan Wind Gongs

Yes, each gong comes with a mallet.

Wind Gongs are flat, compared to their gong relatives, and Tam Tams, and provide the gong player with a higher pitched, shiny overtone and decently long sustain.

You've probably seen Wuhan Wind Gongs played by rock drummers who use a big kit. They incorporate a wind gong when they are looking for a crashy, trashy, (and to keep the rhyme going), splashy sound.

However, in a more traditional setting, Wuhan Wind Gongs are played with a soft mallet, which makes the gong sound much different than a drumstick.

If you're lucky, after you buy a wind gong, you'll be visited by Fei Lian, the Chinese God of Wind. You'll know it's him, cause he looks like a winged dragon with the head of a stag and the tail of a snake. (He's a god made by committee.)
