The product price includes a one year warranty and 30 day money back guarantee.

However, the Gear4music extended warranty scheme provides an enhanced service, and is designed to offer a higher level of protection than many 'free' warranties offered by some retailers and manufacturers.

The highlights of this enhanced warranty service are:

  • Warranty is extended to 3 years from the date of delivery.
  • Our Money Back guarantee is extended from 30 days to 90 days (terms apply after 30 days)
  • Collection and delivery costs are included for the first two years
  • Claim 50% cash back on the cost of the policy after 3 years if it has not been used!
  • Warranty is transferable if the item is re-sold
  • Loan or replacement equipment will be provided if the product isn't repaired within 30 days
  • If an item can not be repaired, a similar alternative product or cash discount (as defined in this policy) will be offered
  • The policy can be cancelled within 30 days, and at any time after that for a pro-rata discount

Please note that this extended warranty is currently only available on products sold within the EU or EEA, and is subject to the terms and conditions as detailed on the extended warranty certificate provided.

For customers in outlying areas of the country, the price of the Extended Warranty may be marginally higher, due to the potential for higher collection and redelivery transport costs.

This enhanced warranty is in addition to the standard Gear4music and manufacturer warranty policies, and the Gear4music terms and conditions of trade. No statement or condition of sale contained within these terms affects or restricts your statutory rights as defined under the Consumer Contracts Regulation 2014.

WHD 32" Chau Gong


The 32" Chau Gong, also known as the Tam Tam, produces an explosive and colourful sound that is full of warm, deep tones. With the iconic bullseye design and manufactured in Wuhan in China, it looks every bit as good as it sounds at a very affordable price. This medium sized gong is suitable for smaller ensembles and for practise rooms, as well as for concerts where a more crashy sound is needed.

The Home Of The Gong

The 32" Chau Gong is handmade in Wuhan, China; the home of the gong. The centre spot and rim of the Chau gong maintains its natural coating, and the rest of the gong is lathed and polished which offers the perfect balance of durability and timbre. A gentle crescendo roll on this gong will create a beautiful and mysterious tone which climaxes in a piercing crash full of sustaining overtones.

Perfect Orchestral Instrument

The Chau gong (or Tam Tam) has established itself as a very important piece of percussion in a modern symphony orchestra due to its extreme versatility. The nature of a Chau gong is to offer an explosive crescendo with a long delay and sustain and this gong is no exception, and with a slightly varied playing technique you can also achieve short, quickly dampened notes, and generate all sorts of different and experimental sounds! Many modern compositions include the Chau Gong, which is used extensively for effects, particularly in film music.

If you also require a stand with this gong, try the WHD Adjustable Gong Stand 32".

  • 32" Bronze Alloy (80% Copper & 20% Tin)
