Gong of DOOM!

Rate this Entry
Sound is so important.
Even in the days of "silent" movies, there was always musical accompaniment to set the mood.
While we all love the old "Thrilling Chilling" sound FX records, isn't it cool to find new sounds to add to our haunt's ambience?

Listen to the sounds produced by this gong and its master player!

Pretty sure most haunts could use this sound somewhere. If you load it into any sound editor and play with the timing and reverb, you'll find some really weird stuff!

Here's a link to another vid of a different gong and player:

I guess there's more to gongs than just a loud "bong" sound!

If you're looking for some cool sounds for your scenes, don't you owe it to yourself to explore this amazing instrument?
