Thai gong
« on: August 09, 2017, 11:36:43 AM »
I've been offered a large Thai gong, of which im unfamiliar with. I've owned Vietnamese in the past, and enjoyed playing. From the photo im 'assuming' that its been struck in the centre in the usual manner, but not rubbed as it would be in its country of origin(i made this assumption from the lack of wear on the centre).

What if any is your experience of Thai gongs?, the price seems fair at just over 2k AUD, it might be negotiable and includes the Aussie made Stand.

The Thai gong is still available, and negotiable....

Ahh, cool. Are you going to go gong shopping in Germany for something in particular or you just want to be prepared in case you see something you 'must have"? ;-)

There will always be a must have, but primarily for a custom order for myself.

Cool, I'll look forward to seeing pictures of what you get if it's something you want to share.
