A set of bossed gongs form two horizontal rows in a partitioned wooden frame. Both rows of gongs are supported by two cords which run the length of the instrument. An arabesque design is engraved on a protruding section at each end of the wooden frame. Used a melodic instrument in gamelan music. The two mallets are the same as those in 078, except they are slightly smaller.
