The three-piece top adds a modern touch to this authentic, hand-hammered wind-activated gong. Chinese instrument makers have made gongs for thousands of years and are deserving of their reputation for making the best in the world. Many processes go into creating the special sound of a Chinese gong, including fine toning as a result of hand-hammering. Handcrafted using traditional methods, the Woodstock Healing Gong™ brings the ancient wonders of the Far East home. From world-famous Woodstock Chimes®.
