Sometimes you need a gong, just a gong, without a stand. We get it. Save some cash. Maybe you already got a stand.
Or plan to hang it from a hook or cymbal stand. With these, yes, you get a gong mallet to strike the gong, but no stand.
The Chinese Gong:
The Chinese have been in love with the gong for over three thousand years. Initially used to herald royalty and the army, the Chinese gong soon became part of their religious ceremonies, healing meditations, and entertainment.
And now we're in love with them, and you're in love with them. And it has nothing to do with global economics. It's just about ease of tone.
