Overview

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.

Looks like a 4-5 star item but it rarely gongs and when it does you can hardly hear it.....I've hung it outside under the eaves at the corner of our house...plenty of wind. The instructions say to level the wood piece above the gong which I had to do every day....finally I put a drop of super glue on the cord where it goes through the gong....that took care of that problem. But the last couple of days we have had winds over 20 mph and the striker line has wrapped itself around the other line. Going to try a larger and slightly heavier wind catcher to see if that helps. If not I'll move it inside just as a decorative item. Was this comment helpful? yes no (1 people found this comment helpful, 1 did not)
