This listing includes the gong, gong stand, and mallet.

These Vietnamese gongs are made by workers of bronze in Vietnam. They are a Cong Gong, which means they have a bell or nipple that focuses the tone of the gong. The tone comes from the center bell and is clarion and healing. They ring out in a bell-like way without crashing. These small gongs have a higher tone to break through fog.

But who is Pham Tuan and why bang his gong?

Well, he joined the Vietnam People’s Air Force in 1965, during that time when the USA was focused on messing with the politics and property of Vietnam. All in the name of a theory named after the singer Fats Domino. It was called the Domino Theory!

During the nastiness of the Vietnam War, Pham flew combat missions against USA fighter planes (We forgive him, after all we dropping napalm on his land.)

The Vietnamese Communists claimed Tuân was the first Vietnam Pilot to shoot down an American B-52 bomber, but the United States Military claimed that B-52s were brought down only by surface-to-air missiles. Who knows in the fog of war?!

All Gongs Unlimited knows is we want to end this fog. Wars are not healthy for people or gongs! Use that metal for guns to make musical instruments! Then the only wars we will have will be the Battles of the Bands!

 


 



The 8” Pham Tuan Gong on High C Stand

Our High C Gong Stands were made especially for Gongs Unlimited because we were tired of crappily made gong stands which created unhappy people, for those old stands that used to be sold around the world were not balanced or not strong for small gongs.

It is super easy to assemble. No tools needed!
