The brilliant resonance of Woodstock Gongs has the ability to transport us toanother time and place without having to pack our bags. For over a thousandyears, gongs of various types have played an important role in both thereligious and secular music of many Asian cultures. Gongs were sounded tochase away evil spirits, warn of invading armies, heal the sick and invoke thespirits of the dead. To be touched by a gong was said to bring happiness andstrength. Today, this revered instrument of warriors, emperors, princes andpriests adds a special aura to any setting. Handcrafted in Wuhan, China usingcenturies old traditional methods, Woodstock Gongs bring the ancient sounds ofthe Far East to your home.Over 30 years ago, Grammy award-winning musician andinstrument designer Garry Kvistad created the first Woodstock Chime from analuminum lawn chair he found in a landfill. Fascinated by the Scale ofOlympos, a 7th century pentatonic scale that cant be played on a modernpiano, Garry cut and tuned the lawn chair tubes to the exact frequency of theancient scale.
