The 32" Chocolate Drop Gong:


The Chocolate Drop gong is similar to the Classic Chau Gong. In fact, it is basically a Chau Gong with the outer dark ring lathed off.

The Chocolate Drop Gong is made of bronze and has a thick rim on its outer edge that helps focus the tone.

The Chocolate Drop Gong starts from a nice deep fundamental, similar to a Chau Gong, but then the Chocolate Drop will splash, crash a little faster than its cousin the Chau. This is thanks to the outside dark ring being lathed off.

Larger Chocolate Drop Gongs, 32 inches and above, can have thick deep tones, thanks to the amount of bronze, that are made more mystical and complex by the extra bit of splash.

Below is recording of 40 inch Chocolate Drop.
Smaller ones will be slightly higher and softer in volume.





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."
