Description

Traditional rough hewn gankogui (African agogo bells) with a stacked configuration. Since each bell is hand-forged, each will have its own unique tone. The sizes will also vary; the smaller bell is about 2.5" diameter and the larger bell about 3.5" diameter. Traditionally used to mark the beat for ceremonies, this bell is one of the most important parts of many percussion ensembles. It produces various open and closed sounds, with a brighter tone than the Nigerian agogo bell.  Try dampening the bell against your leg while you play. Easily hand held, wooden striker included.

any ideas on removing the sticky oil like substance that is preventing anyone from playing this instrument?
A shopper on Apr 16, 2012
BEST ANSWER: My Gankogui does not have any sticky oil on it. I would return the one that did have oil and ask for a new one.
