A gong is an east and southeast asian musical percussion instrument that takes the form of a flat, circular metal disc that is hit with a mallet. The gong traces its roots back to the bronze age around 3500 bc. The term gong originated in java. Scientific and archaeological research has established that burma, china, java, and annam were the four main gong manufacturing centers of the ancient world. The gong later found its way into the western world in the 18th century when it was also used in the percussion section of a western-style symphony orchestra. A form of bronze cauldron gong is known as a resting bell was widely used in ancient greece and rome, for instance in the famous oracle of dodona, where disc gongs were also used.
