    Gong Drums



    An early TAMA original, the Gong Bass Drum features a 22" head on a 20" shell with no bottom head. This design produces a sound with excellent sustain that's close in character to a concert tympani. The Gong Bass Drum utilizes a 7mm thick Starclassic Maple shell. The aluminum Rollaway stand in black finish offers easy yet secure positioning thanks to another TAMA original idea: Power Tower stand components. Available with Chrome shell hardware only.

    Gong Bass drums are available in all the Starclassic Maple finishes.
    GSB and SSB finishes will feature a fade rather than a burst.


    Developed in conjunction with DW Drum artist Marco Minnemann, DW’s gong bass drum incorporates several design innovations and mounting options to better meet the needs of today’s progressive players. Featuring a 21” or 23” 10-ply undersized all-maple shell for increased projection, the gong bass drum is available in any of DW’s finish and drum hardware choices. The gong bass drum also comes equipped with two TB12 brackets that can be used to mount the drum on tom stands or a rack. Floor-tom style legs and brackets are optional.


    The Odery Gong drum was developed for those who are looking for a fat, thuddy sound with plenty of attack. It is available in 14x20", 14x22" or in any other measure to meet your sound requirements.
    and some more companies make them too, including Pearl (in the Masterworks line)

    Just for everyone's edification:

    Pearl= QUARTER TOMS
    Tama= OCTOBANS

    I believe all octos are 6". So just get any 6" heads. They should come with heads when you buy them too(I think?)

    Anybody got some sound or video clips of that groove wedge? The Gerald Heyward page has no video or so it seems.

    If you want to add some rather odd, yet really cool percussion effects on to your set, check out Pete Engelharts stuff. You can get most of it through Rhythm Tech. There's also www.factorymetalpercussion.com. They've got some really off the wall things you can add on to your set. They even have sound samples of them on their website. Check 'em out.
