SOUND CREATION GONGS / Re: Is it an Earth Gong?
« on: June 10, 2015, 07:59:15 am »
Check out this video capture from a Tony Williams Lifetime concert in 1971. Looks to be the same size, same coloration (symphonic style), similar heavy hammering and shape, same black Paiste logo near bottom (can't see in this still but you can in the video). So I'm wondering was the SCEG#3 actually in production at this time? What year were they first released? Thanks again for any insight/info.

SOUND CREATION GONGS / Is it an Earth Gong?
« on: May 29, 2015, 10:09:26 pm »
Hi All,
I recently acquired this 26" Paiste Sound Creation gong...when I bought it I knew it was similar to the SC Earth gong, yet different in a couple ways... I'm a bit befuddled and could use some help to clarify what I have. 
3 grommeted holes, a small sticker that says "No.3" for earth gong series, but the coloration is that of a traditional symphonic, and there seems to be much more hammering than on a regular earth gong, most noteably towards the outside of the rim, and in the center where there are a number of heavy hammer marks from front-back. It also appears to be from the 70's(?) there is the black paste logo on the front, but no white logo on the back. It also came with an old style paiste wood handle and grey felt head mallet.
I was checking out Michael B's "Air/Sky" gong prototype photos in another post, which was a take-off on the traditional Earth gong, and thought this might be similar, but it seems that the additional hammering on his was from back-front and didn't have the heavy hammering in the center. Thanks for any insight!

As an added bonus, I have also attached an image of one of my prize gong possessions, an antique 34" chinese gong that to me very well represents the oriental ancestor to the modern day Earth Gong. Enjoy!
