Capture the exotic sights and sounds of Indonesia with this classroom gamelan pack for 30 players. This is a set of standard instruments based on the musical traditions of Java, Bali, and Sumatra and includes:

  • 3x gongs (30cm 'kenong', 50cm 'kempul' , 80cm 'ageng')
  • 1x 4 pan 'bonang' lateral gongs (for two players)
  • 1x Balinese double headed 'ciblon' drum
  • 9x metallophone gamelans (3 small, 3 medium, and 3 large)
  • 15x sets of 'ceng ceng' Balinese cymbals
  • Beaters for all the instruments
  • 2 different teaching guides by World Music expert Andy Gleadhill


As with the budget set, the gong frames can be dismantled for easy transportation and all metallophones have rubber bases to protect the floor. The standard set features higher quality metal components that make a rounder sound, and the instruments are also made to a more compact design making them easier to move around.

Like all the classroom gamelan packs the instruments are tuned to the pelog selisir scale and have a combined range of three octaves. The Balinese drum is made of jackfruit wood with cow-skin heads and the gongs feature an extra resonant bronze centre.

The peculiar pentatonic music has been a feature of Indonesian culture for at least 1500 years, and is traditionally played at weddings, funerals, and religious festivals, as well as the famous Wayang Kulit shadow puppet shows. Ensembles vary greatly, with some including flutes, bowed strings, and singers.

The music they play is written down using numbers, a system known as cipher notation. The comprehensive teaching guide supplied with the gamelan contains 10 songs to play using a simplified cipher, as well as lesson plans, explanations of playing techniques and a detailed history of the music.
