Yes!  Ting-sha's sound great in reverse!  Try a triangle, too!

As a non-reverse technique, I hit a gong, then quickly make a very short
loop as it decays.  The idea is to grab a quick "snapshot" of the sound.  
you get a really quick snapshot, the sound does not decay very much and you
have an infinitely sustained gong (more or less).
