Cleaning Gong. How to care for your Gong? NEW – DREAM GONG BY TONE OF LIFE
The Dream Gong is our latest creation in small gongs. It is still, soft and gentle with sweet lullaby like tones which gently take you into a dream space where you can dream your dream alive.
A magnificent range of medium and high tones is derived from this small 56 cm gong. Played with large and well balanced mallet, we can play on this gong like a drum and a gong simultaneously. This gong plays best as a handheld and is easy and light to carry, weighing only 4 kilograms. The Gong is well suited for outdoor ceremonies. It has a special wooden handle on the rope which makes it easy on the hand when held for long periods of time. As this Gong is crafted with a tight surface it does not splash easily! One of our best selling gongs.
THERAPEUTIC 4 ELEMENT SERIES
The therapeutic 4 element series is an inspired SilverNickel Gong concept which we have been working with since 2013. Masterminded by Johannes Heimrath and Tom Soltron Czartoryski, each of these Gongs are crafted differently to produce a sound which evokes the feelings associated with it’s element. This is of course subjective.
However through research done using these Gongs in therapeutic settings and Gong baths the feedback has been conclusive with regards to their creation. All four elements – fire, air (cosmo), earth and water are available in different sizes:
Water – 25″ (62 cm), 30″ (75 cm), 36″ (90 cm), 42″ (105 cm), 50″ (125 cm), 62″ (155 cm)
Fire – 30″ (75 cm), 36″ (90 cm)
Earth – 30″ (75 cm), 36″ (90 cm), 42″ (105 cm), 50″ (125 cm), 62″ (157 cm)
Cosmo (air) – 30″ (75 cm), 36″ (90 cm), 42″ (105 cm), 50″ (125 cm), 62″ (157 cm)
Shemoon – 30″ (75 cm), 36″ (90 cm)
The New Water Gong is the latest gong in our 4-Element Series. Whereas Shemoon (original Water Gong) represents and influences the ebb and flow of our waters, The New Water represents water in all of it’s manifestations.
The Water Gong is created in six sizes, each with it’s unique qualities but all with the quality of the Water element. Connecting us with a deep ancestral knowledge, our feelings and emotions, it is nourishing and life giving. They have a very deep, steady, natural and raw sound, as the waters around us, from a tranquil lagoon to a raging ocean.
A great variety of overtones, with a beautiful build-up of low, medium and higher tones. It will enchant and delight you with its beautiful appearance and captivating sound.
Gong Shemoon is linked to our emotions and feelings. It has a deep sound with magic bells ringing here and there; bringing stillness, peace, nurture, gentleness, a sense of calmness, concentrating the attention here and now, like a flowing stream. We currently produce two types of Shemoon Gong: The New Moon, with increasing high overtones and the Full Moon with decreasing, lower overtones. Shemoon is characterized by very high frequencies.
Delicate gong with a very clear sound, is full of vitality, lively and warm. Gently struck with a large mallet, it brings out beautiful low tones. Through continuous rhythmic striking, each additional layer of sound brings up a beautiful bouquets of medium and high tones. Playing this Gong requires a completely new approach and experience. With subtle movements, you can envoque the broadest colour of the sound. This Gong is also visually beautiful, exposing its shimmering colors and sparkles during play… like fire, animates our senses. The element of fire represents the force that animates all existing forms. Available in two sizes.

This Gong sounds deep, from the womb of Mother Earth. When we play gently and carefully, the overtone choir turns into a beautiful song.

Perfect for large groups of participants.
All of our Gongs are handmade from silver nickel alloy and bear the traces and marks of the maker… We do not wish to produce gongs like in the cosmetic industry with perfect skin and a completely unnatural look. We do understand that people have an idea of perfection based on not seeing any trace of the biography of the piece, but to us this is simply an expression of our highly artificial world, the perfect surface of almost everything, giving the mere surface much more importance than the inside values, the traces of work, of labour, of pain and maturity. We wish to guide our players into the wide and vast dimensions behind the surface to realize that what matters in the Gong is the Sound… not the look!!
