Recall

The gansa-gambang is a large example of a metallophone that bears no less than seven curving metal bars placed upon a cradle-shaped body. Gansa-gambang's are often ornamentally carved to resemble dragons or other mythical beasts, with the head and tail rising to either end of the instrument while the belly forms its body. It is most often played with a wooden hammer or beater, and is of a size to make it more suited for homes and guildhouses than travel on the road.
