    Love it! Need Replacement Parts

    This elegant gong-style chime has been a truly beautiful artful asset in our gardens. It has graced the oak, occupied subtle space in the cedars and was a presence at the entry to our home. The sound is beautiful and never over-the-top unless winds were high.

    For fifteen years it was outdoors and withstood the climate and seasonal changes of Great Lakes winters. Woodstock has provided replacement cord and rubber rings.

    It is now in pieces as the wood, after fifteen years outdoors, needs to be replaced. Hoping to reorder parts or find a woodworker who can use the old pieces as a template to have it grace our yard once again.

    This is my favorite wind chime

    This is my favorite gong. It sits in front of my house. Everyone notices it and I get tons of compliments on it every time someone comes to my door, I especially Love the deep tonal calmingness of it …. like the monks of Thailand.

    Can’t wait to get my new one.

    Best investment for my backyard meditation

    I also wanted to add,
    The rubber bumper that goes around the clapper does quiet the sound. I took the rubber bumper off for a period of time to make the clapper hit the Gong harder which made it louder.
    With the rubber bumper the sound is softer. I prefer softer. So it is a matter of personal preference

    Best investment for my backyard meditation

    I purchased this Emperor Gong several years ago. Every evening I sit and read in the covered patios in my back yard.
    The Emperor Gong has a truly restful and magnificent sound . I have a very stressful and demanding job. I need to destress nearly every night. I could not do this without my Emperor Gong. While I do agree the sound is not loud, and the wind needs to be brisk for the Gong to work naturally, I use use the flapper myself to make a loud sound or let the evening breeze make softer sounds. The other reviews IMHO. Don't understand the use of the Emperor Gong. IMHO, the Gong is for meditation and not to scare away critters, which the bells and louder chimes seem to do. I am truly fortunate to have found such a beautiful and wonderful Gong to help me at the end of my day.


    I purchased this gong from a monestary. I love the look of it. The simple lines are beautiful, but the design does not allow for a lot of sound. I have moved it to other areas, but it is my belief that the design needs to be revisited, it simple does not work. Sorry.
