The Planetary series of gongs is an opportunity to by a highly refined and highly polished chau style gong, with precise tuning. You will know what your gong with sound like before purchasing. You can also buy a planetary gong, or multiple planetary gongs, that will harmonize with your existing instruments or harmonize together.
The gongs themselves are highly polished and refined in their tone, with clear harmonics building over time to a complete and steady crash. The smaller sizes will have higher tones, and will crash faster, so there is less potential for building sound up to the crash.
Listen to the sound file of each gong, to get a sense of their bass notes, progression in tone, and crash. Please wear headphones.
