Temple gongs for Hire
The Temple gong is a completely different style of gong. Originating in the temples of the Far East, this gong is much thicker than most and is completely flat with a 90 degree lip. These gongs range in size from around 14" to 22" and due to their thickness there is very little splash but at the same time not a lot of pitch either.
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.
