The Gou Gong (sometimes called a Hmong Shaman gong) has rich history and tradition of healing, being used as a medicinal tool. This instrument is heavy and thick with a turned edge, and produces warm tones that are clear and linear, with less spread and overtones than traditional chau or wind gongs. Gou Gongs produce a higher fundamental pitch with shorter sustain, which can be stretched into longer sustained notes through repeated strokes. Their lower-volume sounds make them best suited for use in smaller ensembles and more intimate performance spaces. The Zildjian 17" Gou Gong features a small Zildjian logo etched into the front of the gong and a small black logo printed on the back of the gong, with a black hanging rope.
