51" Chinese Flat Gong for Hire
The Chinese flat gong is a gong with no upturned edge or nipple and resembles the sound of a tam-tam; quite dark and oriental sounding. This is the 51" model for hire - please also see the 36" and 44" Chinese flat gongs.
There are many variations of gong found throughout the World and generally these instruments come from the Far East. A gong is easy to mistake as a tam tam and hire companies are regularly asked for tam tams when the client means gong and gongs when the client means tam tams. As a general rule, the gong has a specific pitch and more often than not a nipple or raised boss in the centre (but not always) and a tam tam has a more indefinite pitch and is much more splashy and crashy.
