Our home, Earth, hangs in a vast cosmos. The majority of our species will never see beyond the confines of our native planet. We are aware of what lies beyond us, however, it is out of our physical reach and many of us fear that in our short time existing on this plane, we will never break free from our own gravitational pull and experience the awe of the outer spaces.
Yet spiritually, we are connected to that which surrounds us, on deep deep levels, and although we have entered into a world that we have adapted to as a species, but our minds wander far from our home and we dream of places that our bodies were never made to go. We are a creative people, explorative and imaginative, and we have found ways of taking aspects of the universe and molding them into physical embodiments of our planet's extraterrestrial counterparts. In a small piece of metal we have the frequencies of space and planets.
Nickel (aka Alpaca) Silver
The nickel silver trigons are made of the same metal as German made gongs like Paiste and Meinl. These trigons are not made from the exact same metal from the same supplier those gongs, of course. The tones that emanate have a slightly different sonic flavor to bronze, but all the tunings are the same. Nickel Silver is also known as Alpaca Silver, and is primarily a mixture of copper and nickel.
