"Just like the naghara, gosha naghara, gaval and other percussion instruments, the laggutu is widely used in modern ensembles and orchestras of national instruments." A rectangular wooden chamber, "the laggutu is placed on a platform," which may also serve as a resonator, "and the performer plays it with two wooden sticks. Usually, the laggutu is 250x125x50 mm in size and made of walnut, apricot, mulberry or beech wood." The thickness of the sides or walls varies, which produces differences in timbre and/or pitch, with the bottom generally being thicker than the top.
