Elemental Design Gongs
These are hand-hammered, tuned "nipple" style gongs made from aluminum.
They have a singular, clear, resonant, and mellowing tone. They are plenty sturdy enough for outside all age use, or also happy indoors.

30" F# Moon Gong - $295

note: The quality of the recordings is not what I'd like, but gives you an idea of the resonance of the gongs.

My mic's not good enough to get the low end of the 36" gong, coming soon!
Tuned Shaped Gongs
I've been experimenting with various shapes of aluminum with pleasing results. These can be used as Doppler gongs or just struck normally.
all have a nice sustain and rich and interesting tonally.
Sting Ray gong (not tuned)
Can be hung horizontal or vertical. Has a wealth of sound. "Wing" span- 45"

Witches Hat Gong - $40. (Right) 16"-30" wide
Wing Gong - $35. (Center L&R). 11"-17" wide

Glass Gong, Flat:
This Glass Gong won't bend your ears like a regular metal gong; the tone is much more subtle and mellow.
It's suitable more for personal toning than rousing the neighbors.
24" - $205 (+ $40 packing fee if shipped.)
$320 on stand (+ $40 packing fee if shipped.)
Recordings begin with a single strike in the middle, then multiple strikes on edge
Glass Gong, Shaped
Like the flat Glass Gong, this is very subtle . The "nipple" helps center and clarify the tone. Can get some interesting tones using a drag mallet.
24" - $320 (+ $40 packing fee if shipped.)
30" -$390 (+ $40 packing fee if shipped.)
With wooden table-top stand, add $115
