A graceful design reminiscent of caligraphy, this gong captures the romance and splendor of the Far East.

Inspired by traditional Asian design, our Emperor Series offers wonderful sound and is intended to reflect balance, harmony, grace and beauty.

Chinese instrument makers have made gongs for thousands of years and are deserving of their reputation of making the best in the world. Many processes go into creating the special sound of a Chinese Gong, including fine toning as a result of hand-hammering.

In Buddhism, the gong is sounded at the start and end of each day. In Chinese temples, gongs are struck 108 times because it's believed that sentient beings have 108 types of worries. The teaching is this - upon hearing the gong, worries will cease, wisdom will grow.

Nothing has the ability to transport us to another time and place quite like the brilliant resonance of a gong. For over a thousand years, gongs of various types have played an important role in both the religious and secular music of many Asian cultures. Gongs were sounded to chase away evil spirits, warn of invading armies, heal the sick and invoke the spirits of the dead. To be touched by a gong was said to bring happiness and strength. Today, this revered instrument of warriors, emperors, princes and priests adds a special aura to any setting. Handcrafted using traditional methods, Woodstock Gongs bring the ancient wonders of the Far East home.

Nicely designed, with a very subtle, mid-to-low tone from even a slight breeze that goes from inaudible to a light (but deep) "humming" sound, made by the vibration of the gong itself. Stiffer winds will give you a more tradition, light "bong" sound as the rubber-edged clapper taps on the gong, while the hum is constant. Very pleasant, not-so-tradition piece. Bang a gong.

I received these as a gift from a friend and found a great place to hang them under the low branch of an apple tree. I can't resist them as I walk by! Was this comment helpful? yes no (0 people found this comment helpful, 0 did not)

I had this gong for 10 years, and it gave me real pleasure. Love it, and will recommend it to anyone who appreciates beautiful look and nice not too loud sound. Will see if repair is possible the wood and rope are in its last breaths. Was this comment helpful? yes no (2 people found this comment helpful, 0 did not)
