About the Workshop
Are you looking to purchase a new gong but aren’t sure which one is best for you? There are hundreds of choices and it can be overwhelming trying to decide which gong to get. Whether it’s your first gong purchase, or you’re looking to add it to your current setup it, it can be helpful to have some guidance, learn about the differences between gong types and makers, and hear them in person.
We created this workshop after receiving many inquiries about how to choose a gong and the desire to hear them in person. For those new to purchasing gongs it can be daunting to choose based on online videos or reading the descriptions. The gongs sound different in person as you hear sounds that aren’t captured through recordings, and you get to feel the strong gong vibrations. Learning what to listen for and the chance to experience the gongs in person will help you get more clear about which gong you want to buy, or add to your current sound bath setup.
The majority of the gongs you will hear are 36″ nickel silver gongs.
