Wat Hanging Gongs Edit
These gongs are more or less flat and circular. They are suspended vertically by ropes passed through holes on the top of the disc. They are struck with a stick whose size is proportional to the gong. The biggest gongs can be prepared by hitting them slightly before giving the real shot, which improves the quality of the sound. The big gongs have a very powerful sound. The smaller gongs are played with bamboo drumsticks or Western drums.
