Double Sided Siter Siter is another instrument that plays the elaborations of the melody, plucked, used in Javanese gamelan music. "Siter" came from the Dutch word "citer," In English, as "zither." It is a plucked string instrument with an oblong box resonator. Usually a Siter has eleven or twelve pairs of unison strings. This one is Double-sided! Typically the strings on one side tuned to pélog and the other to slendro. The siter is generally about a foot long and fits in a box (which it is set upon while played).Used as one of the elaborating instruments (panerusan), that play cengkok (melodic patterns based on the balungan).

Celempung Plucked zither with four legs. Twenty-six strings in groups of two held in place by metal pins in an S-shaped wrest plank. Teakwood body.

The celempung is about three feet long, and is tuned one octave below the siter. They are used as one of the elaborating instruments (panerusan), that play cengkok (melodic patterns based on the balungan). Both the siter and celempung play at the same speed as the gambang (which is rapidly).

The name "Celempung" is related to the Sundanese musical form celempungan. The strings of the siter are played with the thumbnails, while the fingers are used to dampen the strings when the next one is hit, as is typical with instruments in the gamelan. The fingers of both hands are used for the damping, with the right hand below the strings and the left hand above them.

Siters and celempung of various sizes are the characteristic instrument in Gamelan Siteran, although they are used in many other varieties of gamelan as well. STR213   $395.00
