Where can I buy a band gong in Minnesota in person (as opposed to online)?

Call any high school music department and ask the director where he/she get their supplies, their instruments, and their instrumental maintenance. Your odds are better if you live near a large city. BTW, Why are you averse to an online purchase from one of the big suppliers like Paiste' or Zildjian?

I'm opposed to online purchasing because it's suppose to be a Christmas present for someone because I know someone that's always wanted one (for 6 years) and whenever I order online, something goes wrong and I don't want her opening it and finding a broken gong.

@Mello, all this and you bang the skins too?! Is there anything you "don't" do?! Impressive to say the least!

No problem . . . I'm a retired teacher and used to have a 15 inch gong on my desk . . . used mostly for getting attention to begin class, it came in very handy when students chose to "rest" their eyes . . . the other students would rat them out just to see the gong reaction!

@Mikale . . . actually, I'm primarily a brass player . . . played a Mellophone in Drum and Bugle Corps (who's primary uniform color was "Blue") . . . I have flirted with drums, but brass is my base . . .

I always wanted a big gong behind my set. In the 80's that was the thing to have, ie Alex Van Halen, but could never afford the $3,000 for the 40 incher! So I used my biggest Zildjian China Pang and would hit it over my shoulder...ya, I was almost a rockstar, lol...

Is there a Guitar Center near you? That's where I get all my percussion needs fulfilled. But get ready to throw down a pretty penny for a gong!

Um, not sure anymore...in the 80's, the one I wanted was $3,000...I'm pretty sure it's still there, waiting for my return!

Lately, I've gone all electric. I'm sure the neighbors appreciate it a little more!
