This listing comes with four tuned Bao Gongs that were ear selected to play well with one another and two gong mallets.
Note: The gongs in the photo are not the exact gongs you will receive, but are an example of what these gongs usually look like. This set of Bao Gongs is unique. Once it has sold, we won't have another one exactly like it, but we will eventually have more sets of tuned Bao Gongs. Please watch the video below to see and hear if this set of Bao Gongs resonate with you.
This Set of 4 Chinese Bao Gongs creates clean, clear, bright tones, similar to a bell-tone. In fact, "Bao" means bell. The combination of a raised nipple in the center and a thick rim off the edge of the gong creates a focused tone, perfect for holding a specific tuned note.
These gongs are hand-tuned in China and we've collected them in sets, perfect for musicians looking to fit their gongs into a certain key for a specific piece of music. But they're also great for sound therapists and spiritual healers looking to add a new, unique element to their toolkit.
The gongs in this set create a D diminished seventh (Ddim7) chord.
