Gong Bass Drum

Gong Bass Drum The Gong Drum is a large single-headed mountable bass drum/tom hybrid that produces a very low, staccato fundamental. 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" (both 16" deep) 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. One of two mounting options can be chosen; two TB12 brackets that can be used to mount the drum on tom stands or a rack (shown), or three Floor-tom style legs and brackets.

the Gong Bass Drum uses a 22" head mounted Tympani style on a 20" shell with no bottom head. This design produces a thunderous low-end sound with excellent sustain characteristic of the large Taiko drums of ancient Japan.
