The Zildjian Table-Top Gong Stand conveys strength in its simplicity. It is not the UFA or MMA. It seeks to prove nothing, to win nothing. It is here and carries your gong, and that is that. It need say no more.
Zildjian is a name that makes many a drummer happy, as they dream of cymbals being struck by their drumsticks and yielding moments of ecstatic sound and delight to their ears. In their dreams of stardom, they have spinning discs of Zildjian.
But a lot of people - and drummers - do not know that Zildjian also makes a solid and simple metal gong stand for your table. It is not a stand that holds a gong for a stadium concert, but merely a 12" gong, perfect for a room, an office, a spa, a covert speakeasy.

The 12" Dark Star Gong is deep and then speckled with sweet mystical bright sparks. You can hit it lightly, and keep the sound dark. You can hit it with verve, and make the sound all bright.

The Chinese Opera Tree has roots going clear back to the third century CE. “CE” as in China Enlightened or Close Encounters or Centaur Enthusiast…At any rate, this was when the Chinese started getting dramatic for fun!
Emperor Xuanzong of the Tang Dynasty decided to make the Chinese Opera more organized and founded Pear Garden for his amusement. (Yes, this is absolutely where our beloved orange drink of childhood, Tang, originates.)
Though the opera was mostly for the Emperor, the opera was for all and the Disciples of the Pear Garden used gongs. Yes, you're catching on now, Opera Gongs, to call the people to delight in the play and have a refreshing orange beverage.
Masked and dancing, the disciples banged gongs. Wowng! Wowng! Wowng! The pitch bending called one and all to relax, to enjoy, to clear their minds for something entirely new.
May the 12" Tiger Gong do that also for you.
The 12" White Gong AKA the Aotearoa Gong, meaning, 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 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.
