Water Gong has a very deep, steady, natural and raw sound, like a flowing river. It has a great variety of overtones, with a beautiful build-up of medium and higher tones. It will enchant and delight you with its beautiful appearance and captivating sound. Very low and balanced, for such a sized instrument. Connecting us with a deep ancestral knowledge, our feelings and emotions, it is nourishing and life giving. Absolutely unique in every way.
This water gong is a voyage of discovery for me; an enigmatic delight. My relationships with gongs until now have only partially prepared me. The vibrations are thick and intense, strong and polyrhythmic. The voices are soft and spherical, expansive and all-enveloping. The dimensions traveled are fathomless, immeasurable. This gong has the power of kindness, the virtue of the gentle-hearted. It does not seek to dominate or to eclipse, but rather to support, to nourish. Its movements are tidal…. subtle and yet massive. It is a doorway for the player into the mysteries of the feminine (just leave your shoes and your ego at the door).

We invite you to visit our new website devoted exclusively to Tone of Life gongs and accessories: GONGS.TONEOFLIFE.COM
All of our Gongs are handmade from silver nickel alloy and bear the traces and marks of the maker... We do not wish to produce gongs like in the cosmetic industry with perfect skin and a completely unnatural look. We do understand that people have an idea of perfection based on not seeing any trace of the biography of the piece, but to us this is simply an expression of our highly artificial world, the perfect surface of almost everything, giving the mere surface much more important than the inside values, the traces of work, of labor, of pain and maturity. We wish to guide our players into the wide and vast dimensions behind the surface to realize that what matters in the Gong is the Sound... not the look!!
Tone of Life organize workshops where you can learn how to play The Gong. If you are interested check our calendar:
