This is a smaller version of our Temple Gong, with a beautiful rich and lasting tone. Made in Japan from the finest materials, this bell looks and sounds great. Comes with a classic lacquered wooden and leather striker, and sits atop a well made multi-color cushion. The gong itself has a 5.5” diameter and is 4” tall. The cushion is solidly made, 6.5” in diameter, and sits 2.5” tall. The striker is 8.5” in length. The set weighs 2 lbs. 4 oz. in total.
“The gong sounds great. Much nicer than the (more expensive) gong that came from ****. The construction has more material (thicker walls) that give it that nice, sharp chime sound when the rim is struck – unlike the flat response of gongs with thinner walls.
I think you have a winner.”

The bell itself is excellent and makes a beautiful deep sound that resonates a long time. The mallet is average. When striking the bell correctly it is fine. However, it could use a little more padding to prevent that bang, which can happen when the bell is struck incorrectly. Overall, I am very pleased to find such great bell that is affordable.
