We`d like to introduce Ryan Shelledy, a gong maker who lives in Kansas, USA. Ryan is a musician who started to make his own gongs and cymbals in 2011 and has been developing his craft since then.
Ryan only produces limited numbers of gongs, allowing him to put a lot of time into creating a wonderful instrument. We have found his work to be consistently of the highest standard and he uses both ancient and modern techniques. Every gong is unique.
Pictured is a gong we have christened `Deep Waters` because of the low gentle tone that has depth and a surprising power, deep and mysterious. This gong is in stock, although we have recently sold two very quickly - they don`t stay in the showroom for long!

We`ve chosen to illustrate this with the Sedna Gong, a shell rattle, a rain stick and the water chimes.
