The Agazarian Chau Gong with Mallet — also known as a Tam-Tam — is carefully handcrafted in the centuries-old tradition from the Hubei Province of China.
Born from the fired cast of a distinctive bronze alloy, this Chau gong brings a big, deep crash sound, providing a large spread of low tones with intricate characteristics for both performance and recording situations.
From a sustained drone to a building crescendo of fast explosive crashes, this hand-hammered gong with its raw “bull’s-eye” center works in symphonic applications. It also plays well in a variety of other musical genres, blending with a wide array of other instruments. Gong sizes include 26”, 30” and 34”. Gong mallet included.
