The 36" Chau Gong is iconic in appearance. It is what many people see in their mind’s eye when they think of a Chinese Gong. The bull’s-eye design is created by the metal lathing between the rim of the gong and the center. The sound starts deep and is helped by the rim on the edge, while the lathing allows for a strong crash of overtones.
The 36" Wind Gong is fully lathed, creating its shiny appearance. It does not have a rim; it is flat on the edge. This design gives the Wind Gong its complex, splashy, celebratory sound at full volume. At this size, it is full of rich flavors, overtones, and harmonics, with unique pockets of tone that can sound like analog synthesizers with long sustain.And here, it is perfectly paired with our Astral Reflection Gong Stand. This stand was gone, but it has now returned to us for a limited time. The chrome finish complements the beauty of your gong, and the wheels are perfect for moving around at the studio or at home.
