Gongs, Bonang & Pulu

Gongs, Bonang (trompong, reyong, kempli) and Pulu

 

Gamelan orchestras include vertically hung gongs and horizontally strung, tuned bonang in a range of different sizes. We supply Standard and Premium qualities of each. Pulu are often used to accompany singing and have 2 closely tuned keys that produce a wonderful gong-like resonance, full of beats. Pulu are available in standard and budget qualities.
