Music - Meditation - Relaxation - Ornamental


Gongs are amongst the oldest musical instruments in the world dating back to the second millennium AD and possibly longer. Throughout history gongs have accompanied religious ceremonies, government functions, songs, orchestras and theatre performances particularly in Asia. Although still used in these ways, today the applications in which gongs can accompany different musical situations is endless.

Now gongs can be heard with countless artists, instruments, bands and other contemporary musical ensembles as well as orchestras and theatre companies everywhere. The addition of gongs both in the live music arena and the recording studio have brought another dimension of colourful creative options to the musical boiling pot.

Other than music, gongs are widely used for meditation, spiritual healing and are great additions around the home or business as a centrepiece, chime or even a funky door bell.

BTB20 Chau Gongs are made from hand hammered bronze and range in size from 6" to 80" in diameter. Both the front and rear of the BTB20 Chau Gong surface is partly lathed revealing it's 'bull's eye' hi gloss, polished finish. They have explosive power when played hard with the attack in the high and mid range followed by a strong fundamental bass tone. Playing softer releases a rich spectrum of complex harmonics with warm bass. Smaller sized chau gongs are higher pitched and have a more controlled fundamental tone while larger diameter chau gongs have more volume, sustain, richness and low end. BTB20 Chau Gongs are available with optional stands.
