Yunluo (Pitched Gongs)

Like the ten-faced gong, the pitched gongs are small gongs with fixed pitches, fixed on a stand and are normally played with mallets. Often referred to as a ten-faced gong in some provinces, the names of the ten-faced gongs and the pitched gongs have been used interchangeably. The gongs are usually smaller and have tighter but brighter tonal colours. As the number of gongs, pitches and types of gongs used in the instrument is not standardised, there have been a multitude of variations for the pitched gongs.
