Gongs for Healing

The gong is one of the oldest instruments of healing and has been used for thousands of years in meditation, ceremony and rituals. Today they are used in yoga and meditation classes, sound therapy practice, group gong bath meditations and in palliative and cancer treatment centers to promote health and well-being.
The secret of the gong is its tremendous potential for healing and rejuvenation. Because the gong covers the full spectrum of sound, it vibrates all the cells and bones and organs, some more than others, depending upon the pitch of the gong. You feel an influx of energy coming from it in your body as well as hear it. The gong is more accurately a force of energy, like a divine engine, affecting the body’s meridians. By and large, after it’s over, you just feel great. You feel like you’ve been healed by the spirit of nature. The sounds from the gongs travel from the outer ear throughout the body via the vagus nerve — impacting brain waves, respiratory rate and heart rate. Sound and vibration help facilitate a deep sense of peace, release tension and blocked energy, and balance the energy centers in the body.  They are working at a cellular level to rebalance the physical, emotional and spiritual bodies. The soothing effect of being bathed in an ocean of sound creates a profound relaxation and is helpful in reducing the stress that is so harmful to healthy living.

Gongs are flat bronze discs, with little fundamental pitch, heavily tuned overtones, and a long sustained sounding. The modern ones are made of (mostly) electrolytic copper and tin.
Traditionally, a gong is played with a large soft mallet, which gives it a typical roaring crash to match their namesake. They are lathed on both sides and are medium to large in size, typically 15" to 22", but sizes from 7" to 40" are available. The 22" size is most popular, due to its portability and large sound. They are also commonly used by drum-kit drummers in rock music.
Played with a nylon tip drumstick, they sound rather like the coil chimes in an old-fashioned mantle clock. Some have holes in the centre, but they are mounted like all suspended gongs by other holes near the rim. The smaller sizes (7"-12") have a more bell-like tone, due to their thickness and small diameter.

Chao Gong

Gong beater is included for free.

Chao gong is the most famous one in our Chinese traditional percussion instruments. Many Westerners like Chinese Chao gong and Wind gong very much.

The Chao gong is made of electrolytic copper and tin. It is almost flat except for the rim, which is turned up to make a shallow cylinder. On a 10" (25 cms) gong, for example, the rim extends about a half an inch perpendicular to the gong surface. The main surface is slightly concave when viewed from the direction to which the rim is turned. The centre spot and the rim of a Chao gong are left coated on both sides with the black copper oxide that forms during the manufacture of the gong. The rest of the gong is polished to remove this coating. Chao gongs range in size from 7" to 80" (18 – 200 cms) in diameter.

The earliest Chao gong is from a tomb discovered at the Guixian site in the Guangxi Zhuang Autonomous Region of China. It dates from the early Western Han Dynasty. They were known for their very intense and spiritual drumming in rituals and tribal meetings.

Traditionally, Chao gongs were used to clear the way for important officials and processions, much like a police siren today. Sometimes the number of strokes on the gong was used to indicate the seniority of the official. In this way, two officials meeting unexpectedly on the road would know before the meeting which of them should bow down before the other.

Wind gongs are flat bronze discs, with little fundamental pitch, heavy tuned overtones, and long sustain. They are made of electrolytic copper and tin. Traditionally, a wind gong is played with a large soft mallet, which gives it a roaring crash to match their namesake.

Played with a nylon tip drumstick they sound rather like the coil chimes in a mantle clock. Some have holes in the centre, but they are mounted like all suspended gongs by other holes near the rim. The smaller sizes (7"-12" /18 – 30 cms) have a more bell-like tone due to their thickness and small diameter.
