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.

Zildjian Define The Gong

LIMITLESS MUSICAL EXPRESSION

For 400 years, Zildjian has singularly focused on your limitless musical expression, by creating instruments with infinite sound capabilities.  It's been our commitment to creating the sounds that excite your imagination, and the tools that unleash your playing potential, that has kept us at the forefront of music across continents, across genres, and across centuries.  From Avedis Zildjian's first strike of the anvil at the Sultan of the Ottoman Empire's palace to the 15th generation of Zildjian Family members today, our pursuit to create the best and most relevant instruments and tools continues.  From our factory floors to our global Artist family, wherever you are on your musical journey, we hope to inspire you and help you take your sound to the next level...and beyond. 

THE GOLD STANDARD

When it comes to making cymbals, we are referred to as the “Gold Standard”. This is ironic because, in 1618, alchemist Avedis Zildjian was trying to make gold. Instead, he accidentally formulated what's arguably the best cymbal material on the planet. Today at Zildjian, we still use that same secret alloy in every cast cymbal we craft. Avedis’ spirit of experimentation and discovery lives on in our factory; it continually drives us each day to create the highest quality instruments we can, so you can continually create, experiment, and discover your own sound.
 

ZILDJIAN LITERALLY MEANS
"CYMBAL MAKER"

In 1623, the Sultan granted Avedis the family name "Zildjian," which literally means "cymbal smith". After leaving the palace and starting his own foundry, he spent years perfecting his cymbal-making techniques. His process of combining copper, tin, and silver is still a closely guarded family secret, and the casting it produces possesses an extraordinary musical quality and tone. Our skilled craftsmen combine old-world cymbal-making artistry with modern technology, and a dash of cutting-edge innovation to transform Avedis’ alloy into boundless varieties of superior-sounding cymbals for every genre of music.
