Zodiac gong

28" Sabian Zodiac Gong with Logo  52805

List Price: $1055.00

Sale Price: $599 (includes shipping in continental U.S.)

Video below: 28" Zodiac played with the Friction Mallet:

(Note: The natural color of the gong in is silver, characteristic of the nickel-silver alloy, which the gong is made of.  However, the gong is slightly reflective and it easily picks up colors and lighting, which surrounds it.  Hence, in first video on this page the gong picks up the colors in the room and appears gold-tone.  However, the second video [w/ the Friction Mallet] shows more of the Zodiac gong's natural silver color.)

Gong Description: The Zodiac is made with Sabian's unique Nickel-Silver Alloy & produces a clear fundamental and with sustaining overtones. The bass tone can be felt by players and listeners (almost entirely lost in all the videos).  It is very effective for sound therapy, meditation, & gong baths, especially when played at soft, medium-soft & medium volumes.  The overtones sing and can produce choral-like sound, especially when played at soft, medium-soft and sometimes medium volumes.  When played at louder volumes it produces a wash effect with the bass tone underneath it. 

The Zodiac Gong represents a unique series of gongs.  No other gong that we know of has the same hammering style as the Zodiac.  Plus, it's nickel-silver alloy is special.  The design of Zodiac gong is part Chinese and shows similarities to the Chinese Wind gong, but the Zodiac gong is distinct and has it's own effects and beautiful singing qualities.

Recommend Mallet: Sabian Small Mallet, Cannon Small Mallet, Mike Balter General (Brown Yarn) Gong MalletMike Balter General Mallet (black yarn) and/or Paiste M3 or M4.    (Of these professional grade mallets the Balter is the least expensive & Paiste is the most).  If you want to expand the pallet of sounds, then we recommend the Friction Mallet (shown in second video on this page).
