The 36" Dark Star:
The Dark Star gong (formerly known as Asteroid Belt), made only for Gongs Unlimited, is a heavy beast of a gong. It is heavier than a Chau Gong, or other similar gongs of its size.
And with this much bronze, you also hear deep deep tones.
The Dark Star Gong is the subwoofer of gongs.
It is profundity as its nature. It doesn't strive for it.
While the thickness of metal keeps the Dark Star Gong deep in tone, the lathing of the bronze in the center, brings out an interesting musicality and flow.
In this way the Dark Star differs from the Mother Tesla gong, which stays moody and crepuscular. The Dark Star is a gong that gives you an adventure in space.
And space time.
Take a ride with it.
The Meinl Gong/Tam Tam Pro Stand:
The Pro Stand features an impressive reinforced base and thicker, wider metal!
It is more strong and more heavy than the the regular Meinl Stand, so we recommend it for those gongs that are from 36 inches to 44 inches in diameter.
The great thing about the Meinl Gong Stand is that you can adjust the height - lower it towards the floor and sit when you play - or raise it up and stand when you play. Also if you have other gongs, you can put this on this stand as well. It can hold many sizes of gongs.
PLEASE NOTE--These video's sound does not do justice to the amazing tone of this gong. High Fidelity recordings coming soon!
