Recording authentic Balinese instruments

Without the field recording group on Facebook, I wouldn’t be able to record these sound effects. While in Bali, I connected with Anton, a young composer from Denmark who also knew the owner of these wonderful instruments. I’m incredibly grateful for them to allow me access to these 6 instruments to record!

For your information: All recordings we made can be downloaded royalty-free. No band/musician was involved in this sound library only Anton and myself!

I don’t make music myself but appreciate all those creative individuals doing what they love! I don’t know you but thank you that I can be a part of your work!

With that said, you can read about each instrument we used to record this sound library! 


The tones and the tuning of the Ugal is different than standard Genders. Dewa created and customized plates to give them a personal touch and to make a difference.

We recorded several Ugals that are all different in height, weight and of course with different plates. Almost all instruments are made out of bronze.


We finished with the Gender and focused on the Gong. This is by far my favorite instrument. I just love deep tones.

We had two different versions of the Gong one was larger than the other. I recorded with the DPA 4060 and an AKG C411 PP (contact microphone.) Since we didn’t record in a studio, you will experience some background sound like cicadas or rain. I reduced the noise the best I could in post without losing any quality in the sound and sometimes you will hear the sounds in the background. On the other hand, it creates a nice authentic vibe how Ubud sound like at night.


After the Gong, we start recording the Kendang. We had 3 different Kendang which are similar to a drum. We used our hands and a drum hammer to create lots of tones.


Reyongs are made with different sizes and each size creates a different tone. We started from high to low and low to high. In total we recorded 16 different Reyongs!


Later on, we found a broom in the corner and recorded some weird sounds with it as well. You will find all these sounds in the Bandcamp album down below.


Cheng Cheng

Last but not least is the Ching Ching. This is a very fun instrument. If you love the sound of very high tones, this is the one for you and a perfect instrument for you to experience!

As I mention before these sounds are not recorded in a studio. We did all recordings in the garden at night so cicada sounds might appear!
