Product information "Chinese tam-tam / Chau Gong (CHTT)"

Original Chinese tam-tams from Wuhan (Chau Gong). The hand-forged instruments are tested and selected directly in their country of origin by Kolberg staff according to the highest quality standards.
In our exhibition rooms we provide a unique stock of tam-tams and are glad to invite you to test them here on our premises and to select your instrument. They come in 18 sizes Ø 50 - 135 cm. We will assort harmonised tam-tam sets on request.

 

Sound

  • balanced sound spectrum with a large amount of fundamental tone
  • warm, stable, sustained
  • very long, homogenous decay of vibration
  • gong-like attack
  • at the same size they sound higher than flat tam-tams (CHTF)

 

Suspension

Sharp-edged drill holes on all tam-tams are re-finished. Heavy-duty and durable special cords are used for the two-point suspension. These high-quality specially braided nylon cords, exclusively produced for Kolberg Percussion in different cross-sections, are used for all our products, as they do not cause any vibration noises and are extremely durable.

 

Accessories (additional price)
