28" diameterHello! This is a photo of the new design of the Meinl Wood Stand.
We have not had a chance to redo all our photographs of our gong combos
on this new gong stand.
This is what the gong stand will look like that you are purchasing.
Same Gong. Same Mallet. Same Wood on the stand. Just a little different look.
The 28" Mother Tesla Gong:
The Mother Tesla gong is an unlathed Chinese Bronze Gong. Made similarly to the Chau Gong, in this case the gong makers do not peel off the outside layer of bronze to make it shinier. In this manner, the gong does not crash or splash or get into a wash of tones as readily as any of the other gongs that are shiny, like the Chocolate Drop, or Wind Gong, Subatomic etc.
So not only is its look very mystical and deep, so is its sound. It doesn't like to crash. It is good for being meditative or keeping the mood profound.
Some older videos show you how this amazing gong sounds. HOWEVER, please note in REAL LIFE, when you are standing by the gong, it is much deeper and more comprehensive in its tone. These are samples.
The Meinl Wood Gong Stand:
The Meinl Wood Gong Stand is made from strong but light Birch Wood.
This beautiful and well priced gong stand made by Meinl can hold gongs from 24 to 32 inches.
It is made of three pieces, the two verticals and the top horizontal piece that all slide together, no tools needed. It is easy to take apart and travel with.
FROM A RECENT CUSTOMER:
"...in case you are wondering... the Meinl Wooden Stand is very sturdy for my 32 inch gong, and for the way I play the gong. It is a slightly more cumbersome than carrying the C-stand but it more than makes up for that in structure and solid foundation. No loose wing-nuts or worries of tipping over! Thanks."
