SOUND CREATION GONGS / Re: Is it an Earth Gong?
« Last post by Paul Ford on June 02, 2015, 12:29:18 am »
Yes i believe so, i owned one the same a while back. It was one of the seven Esoterics i owned at the time, as people might know them by. Grommeted and stickered as yours is.  Much more responsive than the usual SCG Earth it was. There are a number of similar styled proto's in existence which other people might be able to comment on.

Nice Chinese!, thanks for sharing :)

SOUND CREATION GONGS / Is it an Earth Gong?
« Last post by Todd Glacy 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!

GONG STANDS / Stand weight and portability
« Last post by Odette - www.londongong.co.uk on March 04, 2015, 04:12:00 am »
Hello there

I am looking for the most lightweight stand. I have a 28" gong and hope to get a 32" in the future so for now would like a 32" stand which I can use for either gong.

Thanks

Odette :-)

GONG FORUM / Working with Don Conreaux & Mysterious Tremendum
« Last post by Michael Bettine on November 25, 2014, 08:21:50 pm »
This past weekend I had the opportunity to play along with Don Conreaux and his Mysterious Tremendum in both Milwaukee and Chicago. It was great to finally meet Don after following him and his work for 20 some years. I detailed the experience in my blog, The Way Of The Gong:http://thewayofthegong.blogspot.com/2014/11/a-meeting-of-minds-metal-don-conreaux.html

It was a Paiste Gong festival! We were fortunate to be at Andy's Music in Chicago in their Gong room, so there many beautiful Gongs to play.
