Tingklik Sample Pack

A Tingklik is a bamboo percussion instrument from Bali.  It’s often used for “Rindik” music, so is sometimes referred to as a Rindik itself. Rindik music usually involves two Tingklik players and a single Suling (bamboo flute). 

A Tingklik typically has 11 bamboo tubes, although the instrument we sampled has 12. With five notes per octave, the range is just over 2 octaves.  The tubes are suspended using string over a wooden frame. The player sits on the ground and strikes the bamboo tubes with rubber-tipped mallets.

The Tingklik player uses both hands, bouncing the mallets in a constant rhythm. The left hand usually plays the melody and the right hand plays an accompaniment to it.  If there are two players, the right hand parts are often interlocking (a technique called kotekan), giving an illusion of very extremely fast playing ; A “bubbling chatter of bamboo brilliance”.

Note: Sample packs require a Lumen instrument to be used.

This sample pack is included with your purchase of a Lumen Handpan.
