gong sets "ci wain" and "maun sain"
The gong set "maun sain"shown on
the right picture is sometimes also
called "gong rak" and was introduced lately in the 1920ies.
gong circle "ci wain" shown on the left picture is a smaller
counterpart of the "pat wain" drum circle and is associated to be
played much easier.
The 21 gongs get beaten with mallets, the higher pitched gongs get
softened with the palm or the fingers in order to not oversound
the "pat wain" drums.
It consists of 18 to 19 bossed gongs arranged in up to five rows, hung
into wooden frames and placed on the ground.
Each gong gets tuned by a
filling like the pat wain drum circle.
