Our Large Temple Gong is a grand and beautiful instrument. It is carefully crafted in Japan, where the best gongs of this type are made. When struck it renders a lovely deep tone that lasts and lasts. The gong is made of iron alloy, with a 12” diameter at top, 13” at its widest point. It stands 9.25” high without its cushion, and weighs 14.5 lbs. It comes complete with a multi-colored cushion and excellent leather bound striker.
