Gongs 

A Gong is an East and South East Asian musical Percussion Instrument that takes the form of a flat metal disc which is hit with a mallet. There are three types of Gongs. 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. Bossed or nipple gongs have a raised center boss and are often suspended and played horizontally. 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.
