The Zildjian Gou Gong (sometimes called a Hmong Shaman Gong) has a rich history and tradition of healing and being used as a medicinal tool. This gong is heavy and thick with a turned edge, producing warm tones that are clear and linear, with less spread and overtones than a traditional Chau or Wind Gong.
Gou Gongs produce a higher fundamental pitch with shorter sustain than other gongs. Their lower-volume sounds make them best suited for use in smaller ensembles and more intimate performance spaces. There is a small Zildjian logo etched on the front of the gong and a small black logo printed on the back of the gong.
