Collection: Traditional Thai and Laos Musical Instruments

Traditional Thai musical instruments (Thai: เครื่องดนตรีไทย, RTGS: Khrueang Dontri Thai) are the essential musical instruments used in the traditional and classical music of Thailand. They encompass a wide range of wind, string, and percussion instruments played by both the Thai majority and the nation's ethnic minorities. In the traditional Thai system of organology, the instruments are unmistakably classified into four categories based on the action used in playing: 1. Plucking (plucked string instruments; เครื่องดีด, khrueang dit) 2. Bowing (bowed string instruments; เครื่องสี, khrueang si) 3. Striking (percussion instruments and hammered dulcimer; เครื่องตี, khrueang ti) 4. Blowing (wind instruments; เครื่องเป่า, khrueang pao) Furthermore, traditional Thai musical instruments are distinctly classified into four categories according to the region in which they are used.
