BUDDHIST MONASTERY BELL, Keisu / Kesu / Shokei, NEW HAMMERED BOWL GONG
Brass hammered into the shape of a bowl, which rests mouth up on a cushion and is rung by striking the lip.
The keisu(shokei) are gongs in bowl shape. The rim is thicker on the inside, which allows for a lower sound. The keisu is struck from the outside at the rim.
The striker is wooden, half of it is covered with a thin soft layer, the handle is usually covered with red lacquer. The large gong is struck before the chanting
starts, the smaller gong is struck during the chanting. It demarks parts and especially important places in the chanted text. The Ino, who leads the chanting,
strikes the keisu.
