Chalklin Esoteric GME1 #1 Gong Mallet
The Chalklin Esoteric GME1 #1 gong mallet has been designed to extract sounds from gongs 22 to 24 inches in diameter. It is the perfect gong mallet for use in a ‘roller pair’ when there is a need to generate subtle vibrations from your gong.
Chalklin designed their Esoteric gong mallets for use in gong therapy which covers everything from sound-healing to Yoga. Gong therapy requires a different range of sounds in comparison to when a gong is used in an orchestral setting, so Chalkin set themselves the task of creating a range of mallets which targets the needs of the gong therapy community.
Weighing 251g, the Chalklin Esoteric GME1 features a soft, rounded head with a metal handle. At the bottom of the handle, you will find a synthetic grip and a convenient rope for hanging the mallet when not in use.
We have received great feedback from our gong-therapist customers about the Esoteric range and we encourage other healers to try a Chalklin mallet when seeking new sonic possibilities during healing scenarios.
