Please review our Gong Purchasing Guide for helpful information on how to purchase a gong and what gong will fit your needs. Wind gongs are a classic gong design seen all over the world. They are essentially a circular metal plate, with very little curve to them. Because of this they have very relaxing, soothing, powerful deep fundamental notes. A 26" Wind gong will be lower than a 26" Chau gong for example. Because wind gongs don't have a lip, they very easily produce a shimmering crash the moment you hit them with strength. Very large wind gongs (40 inches) are cosmic, producing deep space sounds. A great size of a wind gong the begin with is between 26 and 32 inches.
