Details

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"

icon star icon star icon star icon star icon star

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.

"A Beautifully Made Piece"

icon star icon star icon star icon star icon star

I bought the "butterfly" khim a month before I bought this "purity" khim. Both are beautiful in sound and appearance. Also, the fact that an artisan's name is attached and that they're associated with National Geographic make the pieces extra special. The bamboo sticks or mallets are very fragile and I snapped it while packing it back in the box, so one would have to be careful with them.
