OVERVIEW

This gong captures the romance and splendor of the Far East with it graceful design.

The Emperor Series is inspired by traditional Asian design. It offers wonderful sound and is intended to reflect balance, harmony, grace and beauty.

For thousands of years the Chinese have made instruments such as gongs and are deserving of their reputation of making the best in the world. In creating these Chinese gongs there are many processes, including fine toning as a result of hand-hammering.

In Buddhism tradition, the start of each day begins with the gong being sounded. Gongs are struck 108 times in Chinese temples because it's believed that sentient beings have 108 types of worries. The teaching is this - upon hearing the gong, worries will cease, wisdom will grow.

Unlike anything else, the brilliant resonance of the gong has the ability to transport us to another time and place. For over a thousand years gongs of various types have played an important role in both the religious and secular music of many Asian cultures. It is said the sounding of gongs chase away evil spirits, warn of invading armies, heal the sick and invoke the spirits of the dead. To be touched by a gong was said to bring happiness and strength. Today, this revered instrument of warriors, emperors, princes and priests adds a special aura to any setting. Woodstock Gongs are handcrafted using traditional methods, bringing the ancient wonders of the Far East home.

4 stars Very pretty little gong

This is a beautiful little gong and very well made and pleasing to the eye. My only complaint - and it's a minor one - is that the sound made when the gong chimes is very faint. Still pretty, just hard to hear.

We have a screened front entrance to our home. This little emperor gong is a wonderful addition. We get a nice daily breeze from the ocean and the sound is so calm and peaceful.

Small but has a great deep tone, reminds me of my deployments to the orient. Worth the money. Good quality looks great on my patio.
