The Dance Gong is our finest creation in small, hand held gongs so far. It is small 22” (55.5cm) and weighs only 4kg. This Gong is easy to carry and dance with during performances and gong bath. The rope is fitted with a comfortable wooden handle to make this Gong comfortable to hold in the hand. Very light and with an amazing range of sound for such a small instrument. As this Gong is crafted with a tight surface it does not splash easily!
MAITREYA PEACE GONGS
Created in 2005 by Tom Soltron Czartoryski and Don Conreaux. The Maitreya Peace Gong was originally crafted as a ceremonial Gongs with the creation of the 23” (56cm) Peace Gong. Now we offer them in 3 sizes: 25” (63cm), 30” (75cm) and 42” (105cm). These Gongs are simple and versatile. They work well for Concerts, Sound Baths, or as a compliment to healing session and Yoga classes… to mention just a few possibilities!
These are symphonic Gongs, this means they are not locked into any specific frequency, opening the sound spectrum of possibilities. Each one is handcrafted until it produces the highest possible range of overtones for its size. The smallest of the range, the 25”, is easy to transport and a beautiful ‘sound’ and visual compliment to any ceremony or performance. As a small Gong, it is supreme in its sound potential, with longer sustain and deeper tones than any other Gong of this size.
The middle size, the 30” is a wonderful first Gong, it is large enough to create a capsule of sound which is all enveloping taking you on a magical journey deep within yourself and deep within the sound. It has the size capability to fill the acoustic space of a reasonably sized room. You will not get tired of exploring the possibilities of this Gong. With each mallet or flumie, a different picture appears. And with playing experience the angelic choir breaks into song.
The largest, the 42”, is a work of art. The symphony of symphonies, a million solar systems within a million universes, the drop and the ocean. With one strike of the mallet the Vach Choir begins to sing its enchanting song which touches your heart and soul.
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 (shemoon) come in 30” (76cm) with the exception of cosmo (air) and earth, which are also available in 42” (105cm) and 62” (157cm).
WATER GONG (SHEMOON)
Water has a deep sound with magic bells ringing here and there, bringing stillness and calm and a sense of peace and nurture. Like a flowing stream. Water is the element associated with emotions and feelings.
This Gong is full of vitality, alive and warm. Like fire it demands awareness and subtlety to bring out it’s most vibrant beauty. It crackles and sparks and dances like fire enlivening our sense. The element Fire is the lifeforce which animates all living forms. Associated with the urge to express from inside the Self.
AIR (COSMO) GONG
Sounds cosmic, universal, beautiful, open and rich. The Element Air is associated with the capacity to detach the self and view something objectively, with distance and perspective.
This Gong sounds deep, from the core of mother earth. When played with subtlety and awareness the vach choir breaks into song. The sound transforms from the ethereal to the material realms, tangible and full. The element Earth is associated with the plane of material existence, the condensation of spirit into concrete form.
AIR (COSMO) GONG / EARTH GONG (42” AND 62”)
The symphony of symphonies, a million solar systems within a million universes, the drop and the ocean. With one strike of the mallet the Vach Choir begins to sing its enchanting song in waves of beauty which touch your heart and soul taking you beyond the beyond… in the great Gong tone of life that reverberates within us… Samadhi, Nirvana, Bliss…
