A low, deep and persistent tonal center followed by a gradual and variegated unfolding of the main overtones, until an imposing sound volume is reached where a brilliant crown of slow decaying high frequencies lights up.
These are the tonal characteristics and the vibratory behavior typical of our production, especially in medium and large gongs.
Since these are unique pieces entirely handmade, the ways in which these aspects are mixed and interact is peculiar to each individual instrument, as well as being obviously partly due to the type of beater used and the touch of the player.
The decorative workings have little influence on the final vibration of the gong, although, in some mysterious way, many times there seems to be a close analogy between the visual and sound aspects.
Our gongs are mainly created in stainless steel (VOX and KI) and nickel silver (SHEN) and occasionally in other alloys.
