Settle into the present moment. Deep, calm, resonant tones distinguish these finest quality Japanese gongs from all others. Known as "calm" gongs by the Japanese, they resonate at a slow frequency and are recognized to have a centering effect upon the listener. The timbre or tone quality is rich, sonorous, and settled. They are made in Japan of brass and other metals. Each gong comes with a silk brocade cushion, leather striker, and is stamped with the Kanji character, "touchi", meaning hand hammered.
