Wind Gongs are traditional Chinese instruments for use in symphony orchestras, chamber ensembles, drum corps, meditative and ceremonial settings. Flat in profile with no rim, wind gongs are thin and extremely responsive, producing characteristically shimmering tones across a wide dynamic range. When struck softly, the wind gong resonates with a low drone, and can crescendo to deliver sounds that are sharp, explosive, bright and splashy. Playing lightly with a snare drum or wooden stick creates bell-like tones like those of a grandfather clock. The Zildjian 24 Wind Gong has a high fundamental pitch and an intimate sound. This model features a small Zildjian logo etched into the front of the gong and a small black logo printed on the back of the gong, with a black hanging rope.
