MOUNTING FENG GONG ON CYMBAL STAND

I did this mod perhaps 10 years ago. Actually, it was my concept and design, but my friend Dirty Ed did it because I didn't have many tools back then and he has great stuff.

These gongs have a great sound - they're sometimes called Ascending Gongs. People carry them in parades and hit them on the flat part with sticks and the make a crazy, weird metallic sound that rises at the end, in the space of about a second. As soon as I got this I wanted to mount it, but of course you can't put a hole and mount it like a cymbal. So I came up with this solution.

The metal rods are padded with tubing where they touch the gong metal and the nut screws onto any 8 mm stand. The ends of the three arms are threaded and a small nut keeps the gong in place
