Percussion Plus traditional Chinese chau gong - 60cm
Ref: Percussion Plus PP966
This tradition Chinese chau gong from Percussion Plus is perfect for use both as a functional instrument as well as a beautiful centre piece or ornament. It is constructed from bronze and has been hand crafted in China, using traditional methods, and features a lovely hand hammered finish. The gong comes with a rope attached for hanging the gong on a stand as well as with a cloth headed beater, which can be used to strike the gong to produce a warm, resonant sound.
Gongs were traditionally played as an announcement to clear the way for important officials, with the number of strokes played on the gong signifying the seniority or importance of the official.
