Yes, this is a combo - Gong, Gong Stand, and Mallet!
Gong Diameter: 8"
The Malletheads know that any time they have given a close friend a gift like this eight inches of love, a gong, that the friend has truly enjoyed it.
The friend at first may be confused by a gift of love, that can be measured, like this gong. They usually say that the size of the gift does not matter
, but then once they get it in their hands and play it, get to know it for a while, they realize that size does matter, and they would rather have something like this hanging around waiting for them to play with it, than a fancy diamond ring. Rings are so tiny and really diamonds as wealth were created by the advertising industry in the early 20th century. They are blood and exploitation.
Many friends might think 8 inches (or 20 cm) is small for a gift of love, that they would only be happy with a new car, or a trip to a tropical island, or a gong at least 25 cm, but the Malletheads have seen up close and personal that a gift of love that is 8 inches like this gong will often make the friend you give it to scream and shout with exuberant joy after only a few minutes. Of course not every friend gets that demonstrative. Some friends get a gift like this and just squeak with joy, others can fool you with a throaty moan that you might confuse with displeasure. But that is just the way they express approval.
This 8 inches of love is not quiet either. It makes a loud joyous sound as well, when you grab its mallet tightly and bang it hard against the gong. Once you stimulate it, it cannot help but release, a magnificent tone.
And of course, the Malletheads at GONGS UNLIMITED, want you to know that the gong itself, is 8 inches in diameter, the C Gong Stand, a gorgeous strong hard piece of metal, is of course taller.
