This listing includes a traditional Chinese mallet.
The Opera Gongs, including Opera, Tiger, Hand and Fong Gongs, are traditional Chinese gongs that have a unique sound the world associates with Chinese Opera and other Chinese theater.
The front of the gong is distinctly forward from the outer rim of the gong. It is almost like two gongs in one, a front gong and a bigger back gong: two distinct tones tied together. This connection creates an ascending or descending sound. Often called "pitch-bending" this up or down bend accelerates as the gong goes from one note to another making the Opera Gongs a special experience.
The 8" Opera Gong:
This 8.5" Hand Gong is perfect to hold in the hand, but also when you need a hand. It's style is similar to the pitch-bending Opera gong, in that the face is raised and the sound bends. But the face is a bit wider, so the pitch doesn't bend at such a feverish pitch. It's a more assertive and less shrieking call.
Sure to bring a hand to help, to hold, to high-five.
The 8.5" Hand Gong. Hold one today.
The 9" Opera Gong. "Do ya' know what you might like? If you're in a hurry, we got a mess o' hash all ready to go, if that's your bag, or I know back in the back they just put on a pile of saaauuuuuusssssssaaaaagggggeeee-"
Her voice slowed to a snail's pace. In the back, the cook had just rung his 9" Opera Gong to let someone know they had an order up.
As the warbling, pitch-bent tone traveled from the kitchen to the man, it carried with it a suspension agent which nearly halted time. Globules of coffee seemed to hover in mid-air. Pens paused on order pads. The sound emanated in waves.
All the heads in the diner turned toward the sound in unison, just before the suspension caught them.
The diner became all diners.
