Long-lasting, harmonic interplay of fundamental and overtone series
The sound of the heart: The ollihess Gong Freya 36 inch was made like all our gongs from high quality nickel silver and touches you with its overtone-rich sound deep in the heart. The interplay between the fundamental and the overtone series is harmonious, long-lasting, and remains constant in its tuning to each other until it fades out.
The name “Freya” comes from the Norse goddess of love, happiness and spring. Its gentleness and devotion is reflected in the sound spectrum of the Gong Freya: it penetrates to your heart space and makes your spirit gentle.
ollihess Gong Freya – high quality gong made of nickel silver
Nickel silver is one of the world’s highest quality metals. The special mixture of copper, nickel and zinc gives the material its special properties. Nickel silver is not only particularly resistant to corrosion, it is also a metal with high strength. For you this means: With the Gong Freya made of nickel silver you get an instrument that you will enjoy for a long time.
Due to its special composition, nickel silver also enables particularly fine and precise sound spectra. Unlike bronze gongs, the sound of a nickel silver gong changes only slightly due to relaxation, aging, or the influence of gong playing.
The ollihess gong Freya has a diameter of 36 inches, or 91 centimeters and a weight of 11 kilograms.
Sound rich in overtones with the flat gong Freya
A flat gong is an almost flat disc, usually slightly curved back at the edge. Like our Gong Freya, flat gongs are formed from a very thin material that gets thinner towards the edge. Due to the special processing, the vibrations can spread more easily on the instrument. In contrast to the humped gong, the flat gong is played on the entire surface.
The ollihess gong Freya 36 inch is a very overtone-heavy gong that works especially on your chest and head area. The name comes from the Nordic wan goddess of love, which emphasizes the special effect of the gong on the heart space.
Full sound spectrum with the ollihess Gong Mallets
Draw from the full sound: The Gong Mallets by Olli Hess are designed to fully exploit the enormous sound volume of a flat gong. Thanks to the special combination of particularly high-quality and sustainable materials, we have succeeded in almost completely eliminating the impact noise that is often so annoying. In addition, the ergonomically shaped handle ensures that you won’t feel any signs of fatigue in your arms or back, even after playing the gong for a long time.
No matter what your preferences are, you can find the perfect gong mallet or gong driver for you in our online store. With special gong mallets made of felt, rubber or high quality plastic with rough or smooth surface can be energetically composed sound waves with the gong Freya. Increasingly, sound is being used in medicine as a therapeutic adjunct for chronic illnesses and can have a healing effect on the body and mind.
High quality materials for long durability
With all our products we promise you a particularly long shelf life. The composition of high-quality nickel silver ensures that the gong Freya is particularly resistant to wear. We place the same high demands on our gong mallets and gong drivers.
We also emphasize the uniqueness of our gongs with an individual production number, which each gong receives after the final quality inspection. For this purpose, we also provide your gong with a personal engraving on request.
Fair production with careful handwork
We love what we do: A whole lot of heart and soul and, above all, loving handwork goes into every single product we have created and produced. Our gong Freya, like all our gongs, is made in the family manufactory Oetken by the gong farmer Broder especially for Olli Hess. We attach great importance to top quality, therefore manufacturing is possible only in small quantities, usually on order.
We are convinced that the many years of close cooperation and the use of high-quality materials have a decisive effect on the perfection of our instruments. In close cooperation, the gongs Sadja and Wega were created in addition to the gong Freya. You can learn more about our vision, our manufacturing processes and the materials we use in the “About Olli Hess” section.
