For centuries the Wuhan Province in China has been producing Chinese TamTams (black-gold-black) and Feng Gongs (gold only). The instrument is commonly used in traditional operas, folk music and in ancient rituals. We carefully sort through thousands of gongs, directly in China, to chose the best gongs for European musical taste. Each gong is marked with an engraving on the back to guarantee the best quality. Feng-Gongs are also called Sun-Gongs. And it is said that some monks from Asian temples had the ability to match their voice to the frequency of the gong, bringing the gong into resonance from a distance of several hundreds of feet.
