The black rim and center making for the bull's eye design of this Chinese gong are not painted, but rather left as a coating on both sides of the iron oxide that formed during the manufacture of this Chau Gong. And, the rest of its surface, that is, the large playing area, was polished to reveal its beautiful characteristics. The Chau Gong is often referred to as the traditional Chinese gong because it is the most famous among the traditional Chinese percussion instruments and a favorite for international symphonies. In the olden days, however, the Chinese Chau gong was used for tribal meetings, rituals, and to clear the way for the Chinese officials and processions. Features:
