Gongs are used by some of the most respected orchestras and musicians across the western world and also by many healers.
Generally, Gongs are hand produced by specialist-trained manufacturers who adhere to ancient techniques, recipes and techniques that produce gongs, which create sounds which are out of this world.
Gongs create sounds, which connect us to the very nature of the world and join us with the very heart or our true character, beyond our physical body and inherent existence. These gongs take us quite smoothly and easily into an alpha-theta state of optimal recovery and let us enter a deep state of consciousness which connects to creative communication.
Gongs sounds are nearly indescribable. We can find the best understanding of the full capabilities of the remarkable audio tools by listening to gongs live or on a well recorded CD.
It’s thought that these sacred instruments link in with all the energies of whales, that are regarded as the early caretakers of wisdom in our historical past, dating back to the days of Lemuria and Atlantis. The sounds of the whales’ magnificence could be heard and correlated with when listening to the symphonic gongs, and this ancient wisdom could be obtained when one is set free from grasping in the physical and swimming free in the boundless.
There are many kinds of gongs with specific energies and sounds as described below and these gongs can be found in various sizes. There are different main types of gongs accessible.
Symphonic gongs can be found in a variety of sizes including: 20″, 22″, 24″, 26″, 28″, 30″, 32″, 34″, 36″ 38″, 40″, 50″, 60″, 80″. This is the earliest version of gong, with slightly raised surface and harmonic of a universal sound structure. The fundamental note of the gong is balanced with the instrument’s complex overtones.
This is a great starting point for a gong set as this Gong contains even proportions of different gong characteristics, which may be brought forth with different mallets and striking points. The Symphonic gongs feature some of the biggest examples of the instrument like the 80″, the world’s largest gong.
Accent / Deco gongs
These Gongs have a very focused sound when compared with the Symphonic. They can be found in 7/10/13/22″ sizes. There is also the Deco Gongs, which are a variant of the Accent Gongs which include a stand and are best for placing on screen, or on a desk. The come in 7/10/13″ sizes, and in 16″.
The deco gong are produced by hand hammering and are basically a mini Symphonic gong. The tool produces a fascinating and wonderfully exotic sound. These are authentic gongs with complex harmonics and create a unique and decorative addition to a musical or personal atmosphere.
Planet gongs can be found in a variety of sizes: 24″, 28″, 32″, 36″, 38″. They resemble symphonic gongs in nature, but feature a solid basic note tuned to represent a natural harmonic series based on the orbital properties of the Sun, the Earth, the Moon and other planets. Planet Gongs resonate harmonically with the cycles of the cosmos, conveying to us what was known since antiquity as the “music of the spheres”. The Planet Gongs each possess the related symbol at the middle of the gong.
