Gongs Unlimited has had these two Matt Nolan Gongs around for a bit, we had helped him with some US Shipping issues a while back and we have finally have them available for sale for you.
Matt Nolan custom makes cymbals and gongs in the UK. Working in collaboration with gong makers and gong players, his creations are truly one of a kind.
From the Matt Nolan Custom website: "Musical instrument or sculpture? Beyond the revolutionary use of colours and textures on his work, Matt also makes "sculptural gongs" – gongs that are not the usual round shallow dome, but other interesting shapes. For example: hand-shaped or shaped like a bat's or dragon's wing. Not just any old shape will make a pleasant and usable sound though. Combining the visual with the acoustic is a careful balance."
The Matt Nolan Hand Gong once resided at Gongs Unlimited. Here is a video of it being reforged in the desert demonstrating Matt's unique touch to gong forging.
