Thon-Rammana

The rammana is a frame drum used in the classical music of Thailand and Cambodia. It is often played simultaneously, either by the same player or another, with a clay or wooden goblet drum called thon. For a single player, the thon lies on the player's lap and is played with the right hand, while the player holds the rammana with the left hand on their thigh. The playing technique for both drums involves low-pitched, rim, and stopped sounds similar to those used in Arabic drumming, and snapping techniques similar to those of Persian drumming are used on the rammana.
