Matt Nolan Makes Way-Gone Gongs

Matt Nolan's Way Gone Gongs

For the past five years British builder Matt Nolan has been showing off a decidedly different set of instruments he makes. His custom creations, in bronze and steel, take gongs into a new world of sound, characterized by sustained vibrato, tremolo and flanging effects. He also makes some unusual cymbals of stainless steel as well. We got a chance to have Matt test some of them for us at the show in Frankfurt. Here's the results.
