Angklung Angklung covered here are the diatonic scale were found by Mr. Daeng Sutigna also called angklung Padaeng. The structure of the instrument made of bamboo tubes angklung. The principle of the resulting sound is the sound of a bamboo tube that has been hit, and the musical instrument Angklung bamboo tube was "beaten" by vibrating angklung.
The sound remains sound bamboo angklung who was beaten only when angklung vibrated with the frequency of meetings or more often then the 'impression' o'clock become obscured.
If the analogy with the bass at the bamboo in which the size of the bamboo that is used quite large (diameter and height are bigger than angklung) then when the bass at sound (hit), then the impression o'clock already almost gone and that sounded like a bamboo tube as a blown like wind instrument.
Based on How To Play.
Based on how to play the Angklung there are two basic principles that are known so far that is vibrated and di'centok 'or hit short (like technique in violin pizzicato, or plucked.) From the way around with the sound vibrated angklung judged to have good sound quality if the tremors more meetings. If angklung not played often enough then the impression of bamboo that has been hit very dominant if angklung players are few (10-12 people) it is less convenient sound heard. At that meeting the characters sound vibrations angklung can not be fully analogous to the sound of a blown tube (bass analogy bamboo o'clock) because the air is vibrated from the sound effect at that sound like a combination of voice angklung blow and blow. In the second angklung tunings sound and at this aspect is concerned.
