The MEINL Opera Gong is traditionally handcrafted in China by using a special bronze alloy. It has a very pronounced bent-out shape with a large center dot. The Opera Gong plays an important role in traditional Chinese opera due to its descending pitch. An audible glissando effect can be achieved with a very short sustain. The gong comes with an appropriate beater.
