Bamblong - that wooden sound of Asia
The Bamblong is a small bamboo idiophone similar to a marimba or angklung, meticulously hand-crafted from sections of cut and carved bamboo from Southeast Asia. It is comprised of a row of tuned bamboo logs that serve as resonance chambers, each ranging between 1 1⁄2 - 2 1⁄4 inches in diameter and 8 – 14 inches in length, with sound holes cut into the top of each one. The actual playing surface for each log is a thin bamboo plank suspended on pegs over each log. When played with recycled rubber tire mallets, the instrument has a smooth and mellow, yet very crisp and clear musical note, with a quick decay.
Soundiron recorded it first in a very close, intimate dry setting to capture the full warmth and tonality of each note. This gives it a rich, strong presence and total creative flexibility and also allows the Bamblong to work extremely well with any reverb or spatializing effect you like. They deep-sampled the instrument exhaustively, with an average of 20 dynamic velocity layers per note and 10 round-robin variations per dynamic layer. Also included are strikes and rolls using nylon jazz brushes for a unique raspy effect. In addition to the dry studio articulations, the bamblong was also recorded in a large glass and stone recording hall for a bright, organic live sound. This “wet” version of the Bamblong is ideal for use in symphonic arrangements and blending with other concert percussion.
