Gut hole placement
« on: October 19, 2016, 08:41:36 AM »
I'm interested in your experimentation with the gut hole placement. Have any of you drilled additional holes and narrowed/ widened the gut hanging. What was the difference if any to the sound?.

I've had some Gongs that had the holes too close together. This caused them to spin/wobble when played. I drilled a 3rd hole which gave a wider support and holds them steady. I haven't noticed any difference in the sound other than stopping the wobbling tone.
