Unlike our highly technical American society, where we can expect mass produced goods that do not vary from one to the next, our instrument makers in India, Turkey , Egypt, China and Pakistan take natural materials, no two of which are alike, and create musical instruments that stand for the uniqueness of cultures. As a result, many of our products vary in size and look, but each is unique and bears the marks of the skilled hands that crafted it.
Wind gongs are basically a large and very flat bell. When played with a padded mallet they produce a complex wave of musical tones. When struck with a drumstick they sound more like the bells in a large clock. Our wind gongs are made with traditional methods by artisans in China. They are a bronze alloy which is roughly 80% copper and 20% tin. The crafting process is a mixture of hand hammering and working the bronze on a lathe while carefully heating and cooling the metal. The result is a spectacular sounding, very unique musical instrument. Wind gongs are available in a range of sizes, with each size having its own distinct sound. Smaller sizes have a higher pitch and less power while the larger sizes are deeper, richer, and ring with more power and sustain.
