“striking metal” a hand-held brass gong; played by striking the inside with a beater; also called surigane, chan-chiki,or simply kane for short; comes in various sizes of diameter, depth, thickness; may also be suspended from a stand by string or rope tied to its mimi; may be played several different ways — held loosely by the rope, tightly by the rope, with fingers around the mimi, suspended by the mimi within a frame or lying flat on a cushion (in which case, it is struck on the outside).
