This is the best sounding gong I have EVER heard

Comments:

I bought the 36" to replace a 30" that broke during a run through prior to a competition. Oh heavens if you are still reading this review and not pulling out your credit card or getting a PO together there is something wrong. The 36" will ring for 5 minutes it seems. Overtones are incredible. I am a music educator and have been for 14 years. I have heard hundreds of gongs as we host the district band evaluations every year. I have listened to countless bands. NOTHING I HAVE EVER HEARD EVEN REMOTELY COMPARES TO THIS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I have half a mind to record this sample and sell it. It would be the best recorded gong sound available. Where are my C414s?

Outstanding

Comments:

I have the 26" and there is a huge variety of sounds in it. Every striking implement I use on it produces something different. This size is very well balanced; a hard hit can make it crash instantly but there is still plenty of headroom - one can play runs and rhythms on it and easily keep the cleaner, more focused pitches. If you intend to bow the edge of the back rim on these you may want to sand it a little to prevent it from cutting the bow hairs - your fingers won't feel it but the horsehair will. Overall, a highly responsive, powerful instrument. I'd love to see a totally unlathed version.

Best Gongs in the World!

Comments:

I purchased the 24" version without seeing or hearing it, and I was very happy with the instrument that SWM sent me. I used it for Marching Band and Pep band as well as small percussion ensembles. I haven't found a place that this gong can't take the place of any other gong. It's small size works well with softer passages and ensembles, but the fact that it is a Chau Gong makes it a great choice for those big gong needs on a budget. I recently purchased the 36" version the same way and we very pleased with the results. The sound is like any other gong I have ever heard. I can't help but smile everytime I hit it! Passionate Percussionists know what I am talking about!

Weiss Chau Gongs

Comments:

I've purchased many gongs and tam-tams from Steve Weiss Music over the years for both my personal use and for the percussion department at Penn State. Each instrument has a lovely, powerful and resonant sound. I've been a customer at Steve Weiss Music for over twenty-five years because of their large and wide-ranging inventory, reasonable prices, and fast service. Besides that, Steve knows all the best jokes. Dan C. Armstrong Prof. of Percussion Penn State University

SERIOUSLY, LOOK NO FURTHER!!!

Comments:

This gong is AMAZING!!! One of the best sounding, most responsive gongs I have played, and SO CHEAP! I bought the 24", even though I really wanted a 26", but sometimes even and extra $50 can make a difference. I was worried the sound wouldn't be quite full enough, but I rolled the dice. I was right to put my trust in Steve Weiss! This gong sounds great! Buy two today!!!!

Sound Unheard

Comments:

Purchasing this 34" Chau Gong was a big choice and investment for me. The 40" would have been great, but I needed to purchase a gong I could lift. So many people told me to never buy a gong without first playing it/hearing it. Since actually striking gongs in the wear house was not an option for me because I live in California, I had to trust that the gong meant for me would be the one that SWM would choose to send to me. And YES, SWM sent me the gong of my dreams! The gong that SWM sent to me is incredible; the sound, the frequencies, the tone, amount of time sound continues on...all amazing. Being in the flow once again proved be the way to go...or should I say the way to GONG! Thank you SWM for being noble and honest about the gong you sent...I feel I made a good choose by picking SWM. Your integrity sounds OM!

Great Gong

Comments:

I needed a medium-sized gong fast and felt I was taking a big chance ordering online for something you should select by ear, but when it arrived it was perfect. This is one made-in-China item that can't be made anywhere else!

Incredible Tam Tam

Comments:

This is an incredible tam tam. We bought this for the Prescott POPS Symphony in Prescott, AZ. We tend to do big pieces such as film scores and heavy overtures. Our percussion section couldn't be happier. The tam tam made its premiere on "Fanfare for the Common Man". We actually let the audience know that the instrument was new. The crowd applauded wildly. We got the 40". Thank you for picking out a nice one for us.
