"CrysTanium® Gongs is located in the small mountain town of Pagosa Springs, Colorado. The company is the fruit of four decades of inspired devotion to the art of sound sculpture design and fabrication by acoustic sculptor Ross Barrable. The art that graces each gong is created with love by painter Karina Silver.
While the majority of the gongs you’re familiar with are built from bronze and its many alloys, we’ve created a unique process using pure titanium. The relationship between titanium and the human body is a synergistic and harmonious one. If you think about it, titanium is the medical field’s primary metal of choice to reconstruct the human body."
Important Maker's Note:
Each Crystanium Gong is individually handcrafted, one gong at a time. The fabrication process is detailed and thorough to be certain each gong is unique in color and form. Yet despite this attention, we have found there can be minimal visual inconsistencies in the surface of the metal that are only revealed during the anodizing process. Any little mark will in no way compromise the functionality or the sound of your gong.
