Jeerasak Iverse crafts an exceptional khim from jackfruit wood. As beautiful as it is melodic, this instrument takes its name from its shape; kang moo means "square" or "trapezoid." Devas (Thai angels) adorn the piece.

Similar to the dulcimer, the khim features 42 bronze strings. It is played by striking them with rubber-tipped bamboo rods.

"This is an elegant musical instrument," Iverse confides. "Its sound flies from the musician's heart like a butterfly."

The khim includes playing sticks, a wooden stand and carrying case. Additional strings and a tuning fork are also included.

"Fun to Play"

It is well made and appropriate for a beginner in music. It also is a nice piece of furniture and people enjoy looking at it, as well as trying to play it. For me, it's a wonderful memory of my visit to SE Asia.
