This does NOT include a mallet. We recommend purchasing an official Paiste Gong Mallet for this gong! You can find them Here.

The Paiste 38" Earth Gong is a truly spectacular piece with depth and character.

There's percussion, there's drums ... and then there's a gong. Not every band or music project needs one but when you want resonance, great Asian infused sound and a sustain that lasts until you're off stage, packed away and half way home you need a gong.

Used for everything from ceremonies to stage shows the Gong is a traditional instrument that takes the form of a flat, circular metal disc which is hit with a mallet.

Large flat gongs may be 'primed' by lightly hitting them before the main stroke, greatly enhancing the sound and causing the instrument to "speak" sooner, with a shorter delay for the sound to "bloom". Keeping this priming stroke inaudible calls for a great deal of skill. We love these unique pieces here at Andertons. From the day they arrived instore they've garnered great attention

Paiste Planet series

The sound characteristic of Planet Gongs is comparable to that of Symphonic Gong in diameters 20”-38”. Planet Gongs are tuned in conformity with the natural harmonic series based in the orbital properties on the Earth, the Moon, the Sun, and the Planets according to calculations of Hans Cousto. Thus they resonate in harmony with the cycles of the celestial bodies and communicate a distinct aspect of the “music of the spheres” so amply quoted since the Antique. Their sound color is extremely mysterious and conveys an unusual, unfathomable atmosphere.
