The gong has been widespread in Asia since ancient times.
What would the Chinese dragon dance be without the introductory sound of the gong? Whether as the beginning or the end of a ceremonial act, whether in conjunction with other instruments or simply to pay more attention to a moment, this sound body can be used.
It is made in traditional brass forging, paired with the fine hearing of the instrument maker.
We offer several types of this instrument:
• Small table gongs with a diameter of 17 to 23 cm
• small feng, with a diameter of 25 cm and 30 cm
• LargeFeng from 40 cm in diameter
• Tam Tam, the classical Chinese gong, heavier than Feng and with a rim
• the sun gong has a particularly shining sound
We manufacture stands made of solid wood suited for all gongs.
Polished brass, available in 3 diameter sizes: 17 cm, 20 cm and 23 cm. Because the thick border the gong has a stabel less-vibrating sound.
The gongs come complete with a padded gong stick.
Even for using as a table gong are the small Feng.
The feng are thinnner than the table gongs and they don't have a border..
Cause this the sound is more vibrating.
The Feng-Gong is more thin and light as the traditionel Tam Tam. Because the thin material it swings more and produces faster the overtones.
We have small Feng in 25 oder 30 cm diameter, which even have a great sound or large in 40, 45, 50, 55, 60 oder 65 cm diameter
The tam-tam comes from China. Hit with a hard padded stick this gong produces ist typical metallic vibrating sound.
By hitting the gong lightly and quickly the whole range of tones can be heard, right up to the highest which are 'felt' rather than heard.
