The Meinl Sonic Energy Wind Gong Kun is traditionally handcrafted in China with authenticity and durability in mind. Made from a special bronze alloy, the Wing Gong Kun offers exceptional durability and a dominating, resonant tone. Also known as Feng or Sun Gongs, the Wing Gongs have an almost flat shape, allowing the vibration to spread out extremely wide and provide a long sustain. Kun is one of the eight Chinese trigrams, and is said to represent the earth and all things feminine in nature. The Meinl Sonic Energy Wind Gong produces a low-pitched sound, which opens up nicely with sizzling overtones when played more powerfully. Each gong includes a beater designed specifically to get the best sound out of the corresponding gong size.
