The Che Sui Gong is a delightful small gong that will perk up your world when you strike it.
We asked Alice, the English name of the Chinese woman we speak with at our gong-makers in China, what the Che Sui Gong is used for traditionally. And this is what she said. No editing from us.:
Many years ago, che sui gong was used on the water mill in the field.
(Do you know the water mill? It was used for convey the water from the river to the filed to irrigate the farmland.)
When someone has finished his work on the water mill, he have to beat the gong to ask another person take over his work. But now as the water mill is no useful, so a few person will use this gong in China.
