Kong mong

The kong mong or kong ming (Khmer: គង​ម៉ង់) is a Cambodian musical instrument, a single suspended or handheld gong chime made of bronze or brass, held aloft with one hand, while the other beats it with the wooden drumstick, "Onlung Kbal Sva".[1] The gong has two holes drilled in it, with sting through the holes to suspend it.[1] It has a boss (a raised and rounded section in the center) called the "Doh".[1] The name comes from the sound of the chime or gong "which can be heard as 'Mong Mong.'[1] Also described as a "bossed gong."
