Wikipedia: A gong is an East and South East Asian musical percussion instrument that takes the form of a flat, circular metal disc which is hit with a mallet.
Gongs are broadly of three types:
1.) Suspended gongs are more or less flat, circular discs of metal suspended vertically by means of a cord passed through holes near to the top rim.
2.)Bossed or nipple gongs have a raised centre boss and are often suspended and played horizontally.
3.)Bowl gongs are bowl-shaped, and rest on cushions and belong more to bells than gongs.
Gongs are made mainly from bronze or brass but there are many other alloys in use.
