Chinese Gong for opening ceremony

Mr Goh Chok Tong officiating the opening ceremony.

You have an opening for an event that needs a Chinese gong - a big one. You do not want to buy a Chinese gong because most probably you will just use it once and chuck it aside for the rest of the year.

So what do you do? Rent one from us of course!

We offer Gong rentals for events, opening ceremonies, shows or to wake your family up!

Although we sell lots of different kinds of Chinese gongs, from our experience, the kind of gong you will need is a Chao Gong (抄锣). Why? Because it creates that deep wowing tone that everyone is looking for. It comes in sizes as small as 40cm, but what you will need is either a size of 80cm or 100cm.

What does it look like?

Below is a picture of the 80cm Chao Gong with stand. The 100cm Chao Gong will of course look bigger.
