Yes, this gong comes with a mallet!
The Dark Star Gong is mysterious, yet reveals mysteries. It can restore your hardware, it can make your Toyota brake dance, it is the First Airbender.
Similar to the Chau Gong, as it is thick metal with a rim, it rises above the traditional Chau Gong because of its lathing and finishing.
Able to hold deeper notes longer, without the fear of premature splashing sounds, the 22" Dark Star is a gong for those of you who have ears that like to hear things that are more than the normal. For minds and bodies hungry for a flavor and soul healing that is new.
The 22" Dark Star gong goes to the heart of the gray matter, and while traveling the creases of your brain, it unfolds a new way of thinking about things. Prejudices you still hold deat, songs you still sing blue, hopelessness you still carry in your I Give Up Bjorn, it will make them ease on down, ease on down the road.
To paraphrase the Grateful Dead's Dark Star
Shall we gong, you and I while we can
Through the transitive nightfall of diamonds?
To paraphrase CSN's Dark Star
Dark star, let the memory of the gonging
Be the first thing that you think of
When you open up your gong bag and see me, dark star.
To paraphrase Beck's Dark Star
Eyes are gonging
From a gong lit terrain.
