The Vietnamese Bamboo Gong Stand is a GREAT stand for home or office. It works well
for the gong that is played occasionally, struck once to celebrate a sale, or to announce dinner or a guest.
This Gong Stand does NOT work for intense and hard yogic playing. It is NOT a good gong stand to travel with and repeatedly
take apart and reassemble. It's that simple. Questions? Call us. THANKS! The Malletheads at Gongs Unlimited.
This gong stand is great for the office to hit when making a grand entrance or to celebrate a sale. It also looks great in anyone's home it will tie the room all together. This is beautiful stand to keep your gong on.
However, this stand is not made for those of you that play your gong intensely everyday. For example, if you are using your gong for things such as Kundalini yoga or sound healings then this probably isn't the stand for you. Now, back to your regularly scheduled program!
IS BAMBOO GOOD FOR ENVIRONMENT?
Well Mom and Dad....there are many many species of bamboo, and they grow much faster than tress. Some bamboo plants can grow up to a yard - meter - in a single day. Bamboo reaches its full size within 3 to 4 months, and within 3 to 7 years the stalk hardens enough for use in construction.
Bamboo grows in many climates and is native to most of the world. And this is cool, Mom and Dad - because bamboo is a grass, it does NOY require replanting.
Bamboo also absorbs more than two times the carbon dioxide that trees do and generates 35 percent more oxygen, making bamboo growing more important due to global deforestation.
Bamboo also rocks against soil erosion, uses less water than trees, keeps water in watersheds, and helps lower water pollution due to its high consumption of nitrogen and tendency to absorb pollutants like heavy metals.
Damn Bamboo! That be incredible! Right, Mom and Dad! Why would you use a tree ever again, now that you know what bamboo, can do, for you?
Not to say Bamboo is perfect. I mean to be serious for a sec, we got Pandas, don't think about it, but we do. Most commercially-grown bamboo is grown in Asia, where like next to zero regulations preserve their forests.
Should demand increase too much, bamboo growers may push deeper into surrounding forests, depleting the already-dwindling habitats of threatened or endangered species.
Not to mention that Bamboo accounts for 99 percent of the giant panda’s diet. 99 per cent. Damn Pandas! Stick with what you like.
