48" Wind Gong:


Yes you can buy this WIND GONG (aka FENG GONG) without this stand, give us a call. 402-474-GONG!

The 48 inch Wind Gong has a depth of tone, a deepness that distinguishes it from its smaller Wind Brothers and Sisters.

It is also loud and expressive. If you need a gong that has a presence, the 48 Wind will deliver.

The incredible thing about 44 and 48 inch Wind Gongs is that they go places, sonically, that the smaller wind gongs, like 22 and 28 inch do not. They have depth of tone, variations that are creative and clever. Sometimes you get sustains that sound like old school analog synthesizers, other times you have bubbly percolators, deep bass as well. But always if you play them and build it, you can find the crash.

They are fascinating instruments.

Here's a clip of a 48" wind gong:




Bamboo Gong Stand:


IS BAMBOO GOOD FOR ENVIRONMENT?

Well Mom and Dad....there are many many species of bamboo, and they grow much faster than tress. Some bamboo plants can grow up to a yard - meter - in a single day. Bamboo reaches its full size within 3 to 4 months, and within 3 to 7 years the stalk hardens enough for use in construction.

Bamboo grows in many climates and is native to most of the world. And this is cool, Mom and Dad - because bamboo is a grass, it does NOY require replanting.

Bamboo also absorbs more than two times the carbon dioxide that trees do and generates 35 percent more oxygen, making bamboo growing more important due to global deforestation.

Bamboo also rocks against soil erosion, uses less water than trees, keeps water in watersheds, and helps lower water pollution due to its high consumption of nitrogen and tendency to absorb pollutants like heavy metals.

Damn Bamboo! That be incredible! Right, Mom and Dad! Why would you use a tree ever again, now that you know what bamboo, can do, for you?

Not to say Bamboo is perfect. I mean to be serious for a sec, we got Pandas, don't think about it, but we do. Most commercially-grown bamboo is grown in Asia, where like next to zero regulations preserve their forests.

Should demand increase too much, bamboo growers may push deeper into surrounding forests, depleting the already-dwindling habitats of threatened or endangered species.

Not to mention that Bamboo accounts for 99 percent of the giant panda’s diet. 99 per cent. Damn Pandas! Stick with what you like.
