Oetken 36" Gonggong Gong (#JIT962)
Each handmade Oetken Gong has its own individual range of tonality and feel, all while retaining the quality of the classic style. Although Broder Oetken is well known as one of the current gongmasters in the world, he says he is constantly developing, honing, and perfecting his gongmaking process. Like his mentor, Walter Meyer, he intends to pass his knowledge to his apprentices to ensure that this rare handicraft continues.
Gonggong is a dwarf planet in the scattered disc beyond Neptune. It's a weirdo as far as planetoids and other bodies in our solar system go. It is named for a Chinese water god from mythology and folklore.
