This listing does not come with a mallet. See a selection of our Meinl mallets here.
Note: The gong in the picture and video is not the exact gong you will receive, but an example of what they usually look like. This is the last Wu Xing Gong we have in stock. Moving forward, these Meinl Wu Xing gongs will have to be custom ordered here.
Gong Notes: E2 - F2
The Meinl Wu Xing Gongs are handmade and crafted so that these symphonic style gongs will speak from a soft whisper to a deep roar.
The name Wu Xing refers to a Chinese concept that translates to a concept of five elements of life. It is not the same as the Western concept of four elements (fire, earth, water, air) but has more to do with processes, cycles and chi (energy). Wu Xing, or the Five Elements, is used in Chinese medicine, cosmology, feng shui, music, martial arts and now gong making.
