Weiss 9" Jin Ban Pitch Bender Gong - Product Information
This Weiss Hand Selected Jin Ban Gong is a unique and sometimes overlooked gong. The Gongs are typically used in traditional festivals. Wooden slats are sometimes crossed and tucked in between the lip to create a handle. Your can also hold it in your hand a similar way by pressing your thumbs and fingers into the lip of the gong. The Jin Ban has an upward bend that is higher pitched than an opera gong with a much shorter decay. But the Jin Ban becomes more interesting when you play it in a non-traditional way. Lay it face down and play the lip like to produce a sound similar to a cup gong or bell plate. Or, fill the gong with a little bit of water and hold the gong in your palm. you can create eerie pitch bend sounds as you strike the gong lip.
