The 40" Meinl Wind Gong is traditionally handcrafted in China by using a special bronze alloy. These gongs are also known under the name Feng or Sun Gong. The shape is almost flat, and due to this the vibration of the gong spreads out extremely wide with a long sustain. The sound characteristic is mainly low pitched, and by playing the gong more powerfully it opens up nicely with sizzling overtones. Each gong ships with a beater designed to correspond with the gong size.
