Chinese Opera Gongs are pitch-benders. This means when you strike them the correct way, and their tone goes up - ASCENDS - or their tone goes down - DESCENDS. Most smaller Opera gongs, like this one, the note bends up.
This is a gong that makes you pay attention. This is a gong that doesn't let you drone on and on. This is a gong that quiets the kids, or rouses the crowds.
Traditionally, the Chinese Opera Gongs were used to call attention to the Opera, to get people to come into small theaters and enjoy the show. And then they were refined to represent different characters. They work well with Chinese Opera singing, which is not like Western Opera.
Chinese Opera is often a grab you by the crotch and make you pay attention type performance.
