An instrument consisting of a hollow sound box, a bamboo beck, two pegs in the upper neck wound with strings, two strings, and a bow. The sound box is made of sanyuja wood.<br />
<br />
This is a traditional Korean musical instrument with two strings. Sound is produced by the friction between strings made from several strands of thin silk thread and bowstrings made of horsehair. Its unique sound has earned the haegeum alternative, onomatopoeic names such as gaenggaengi and aenggeum. The instrument consists of a hollow sound box, a bamboo neck, two pegs in the upper neck each wound with a string, the strings themselves, and a separate bow. The pegs are currently detached from the neck. The sound box is made of sanyuja wood (Xylosma congestum).
