    Though cymbals and gongs are similar visually, they share few musical qualities. A gong is large and stands on its own, often used for a dramatic and definitive sound. The cymbal is multifunctional, used often as part of a larger drum kit, and fits well in a variety of play styles.

    No drum kit is complete without the striking sound of a cymbal. Crash, ride, and hi-hat cymbals blend seamlessly into the drum kit, while hand-held cymbals with strong straps are best for concert and marching bands. School bands and professional orchestras love the significant sound of a handheld cymbal during the big football game or symphony performance.

    Aesthetically pleasing and hard to miss due to its sheet size, the gong strongly echoes throughout a classroom setting or concert hall. Chau gongs, also known as tam-tams, are the most common style used in orchestras. Other styles like Feng gongs (wind gongs) offer gentle and roaring sound capabilities. New and experienced percussionists enjoy playing the gong due to the ease of use, making it a perfect instrument for the music class.
