The 36" 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.
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.
