BTB20 20" / 50cm WIND GONG - LIFETIME
- Meditation -
Gongs are amongst the oldest musical instruments in the world dating back to the second millenium AD and possibly longer. Throughout history gongs have accompanied religious ceremonies, govenment 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 orchesras 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 centerpiece, chime or even a funky door bell.
BTB20 Wind Gongs are made from hand hammered bronze and range in size from 6" to 52" in diameter. The entire surface of both sides is lathed revealing their hi gloss, polished finish. BTB20 Wind Gongs have a warm and explosive tonal character with the emphasis in the low range. When played hard initial attack is fast, explosive and saturated with shimmery highs before making way for a strong fundamental bass tone. When played softer the low end mushrooms after an even cushion of complex overtones. Smaller sized wind gongs are higher pitched and more controlled while larger diameter wind gongs have more volume, sustain, richness and low end. Great explosive impact. BTB20 Gongs are available with optional stands.
Every BTB20 Gong Includes a Quality BTB20 Gong Mallet.
