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.

Symphonic Gongs

The oldest version of the instrument, Symphonic Gongs have a slightly raised surface (without boss) with a harmonic and universal sound structure. The fundamental note of the gong is balanced with the instrument's complex overtones. The characterising word Symphonic thereby should not be misinterpreted as describing the literal sense of classical symphonic orchestra application but its original sense to unite harmonic sounds. The describing word universal shall be understood as “sound in its entirety”.

Priming the Gong

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

Here's What Sabian Say About the 24" Symphonic Gong

Produces a powerful and sturdy fundamental note which is enhanced and softened by harmonic overtones, creating a full, warm and round response. Very tonal.
