TITANIUM GONGS FOR SALE
With titanium the coloured layer is a robust and inert surface. The process of painting with fire achieves the myriad colours.

I was very pleased with the initial sound of this gong so I sent sound files to John Stuart Reid who prepared a Cymaglyph image by playing the sound file through pure water. I have engraved this Cymaglyph image on the surface of the gong.
Ti 9. 47 inch / 120cm x 2.5mm Titanium Gong £6000
This was a very difficult gong to forge. I was unhappy with the original sound and decided to re-hammer most of it after it had been heated. What I didn't realise was that the heating process with titanium makes it harder and more brittle. Even after the second hammering I was unhappy. Only after really close examination did I find two or three tiny cracks on the rim. I had to find a specialist welder to help rectify this. However the end result is a gong with a very powerful and deep fundamental resonance. Because of these flaws I am offering this gong at a substantial discount.
Ti 7. 46 x 40 inch / 118 x 102 cm x 2.5mm Elliptical Titanium Gong £7000
Creating this gong from a rectangular rather than a square sheet proved an enormous challenge. The relative asymmetry caused all sorts of irregular tensions in the metal. However after many extra hours of hammering the result is a gong with a particularly complex soundscape with rich overtones.
