Details

Contrasts of white and black, amplified by intricate bronze details, characterize this elegant handmade instrument. The khim was introduced to Thailand over a century ago by Chinese merchants, who referred to it as a yang ch'in. Thai artisans have adapted the instrument – similar to a dulcimer – in order to accommodate regional forms of music.

Jeerasak Iverse crafts the body and its sleek cover from local jackfruit wood, as the undulating design complements its sonorous potential. Lacquered to brilliant perfection, the piece features 42 quality bronze strings, achieving a surprisingly delicate tone. Includes bamboo sticks with rubber tips and a convenient tuning key.

The lids on these quality khims are intentionally designed slightly larger then the body of the instrument - ensuring a loose fit that easily and conveniently covers the entire length of the khim.
