The Home Of The Gong
The 42" Chau Gong is handmade in Wuhan, China; the home of the gong. The centre spot and rim of the Chau gong maintains its natural coating, and the rest of the gong is lathed and polished which offers the perfect balance of durability and timbre. A gentle crescendo roll on this gong will create a beautiful and mysterious tone which climaxes in a piercing crash full of sustaining overtones.
Perfect Orchestral Instrument
The Chau gong (or Tam Tam) has established itself as a very important piece of percussion in a modern symphony orchestra due to its extreme versatility.
The nature of a Chau gong is to offer an explosive crescendo with a long delay and sustain and this gong is no exception, and with a slightly varied playing technique you can also achieve short, quickly dampened notes, and generate all sorts of different and experimental sounds! Many modern compositions include the Chau Gong, which is used extensively for effects, particularly in film music.
