This gong is in the Traditional Chinese Chau Gong style.
"The first choice of the world's leading symphony orchestras, drum corps and rock stars alike. One-piece cast construction crafted in China in a Centuries-old tradition. A complex blend of highs and lows with beautiful warm overtones and plenty of attack when necessary. Predrilled and corded."

Please note that because of the way Zildjian likes to do their shipping on gongs, it can sometimes take an extra 7 days to get the Zildjian gongs moving to you. Please contact us if you have any questions.
Sorry for this, but this is how we have to do it, Zildjian style.
