And let the Malletheads tell you, the 26 inch Sabian Symphonic Gong is incredible and awesome. A unique metal, unique tones. Not like the Chinese Gong. This is a special one.
Did you know that the word symphony
is derived from the Greek syn
(together) and phone
(sounding) producing the concept of "sounding together."
Ah, those Greeks, they were important to the world once. With their philosophers, olympians, and homosexuality, etc. Now, they just produce facile romantic comedy movies about getting married.
But back to symphonies. It wasn't until the 18th century that the symphony as we know it was truly created. And sometime between the 18th century and today, Sabian created their Symphonic Gong
Ah, the delicious Sabian Symphonic Gong
. When you strike it, it gives you a powerful fundamental note.
But it doesn't stop there. Nope, this Symphonic Gong is a giver.
After the fundamental note, it brings out the harmonic overtones for you. The Sabian Symphonic Gong literally creates a full, warm, and round response every time you hit it. (Do you know any people that do that?)These are sound examples of the 28" Sabian Symphonic Gong. The 24" and 26" are slightly higher in tone.
