The Meinl planetary tuned Gongs are made in Germany in the European gong making tradition. Using the calculations of Hans Cousto (The Cosmic Octave) to match the frequencies of the sun, moon, and planets, each gong is tuned to produce the corresponding frequency. These gongs are handcrafted by the gong makers to respond with great sensitivity in all playing applications. Their mysterious sound comes from the countless hours spent handworking the metal. It is atmospheric and soothing.
The effect of the gong: supports the speech center and the communicative-intellectual principle Mercury is the planet next to the sun, its rotation around the sun lasts about 88 days. Its tone oscillates in the 30th octave with 141.27 Hz. This tone is a C#. The corresponding colour is a blue with a wavelength of about 480 Nanometers. Of all the planets only the both inner planets (between the sun and earth) can be associated to a Chakra. Mercury, which is, according to astrological and hermetic tradition, the morning star of Gemini and the evening star of Virgo, stand for communication and cleverness. The tones of the planets are heliocentric tones and so they have by far less meaning for the beginning of life on the earth than the oscillation of our own planet and that of the moon.
