A pair of small cymbals, played along with the previous instrument. Baya. A kind of flute, made of bamboo. Naya-khin.

A pair of cymbals, played with the previous instrument. This and the Naya-khin are used in making proclamations. Kahal. A long, straight, copper trumpet. This is used, together with the Naya-khin and Chhusya, when dead bodies are taken to be burnt, and also in worship. Madal. A sort of tamtam or drum, played with both hands. It is peculiar to the Magar caste. Manjuri. A pair of small cymbals, played with the Madal. Kartal. A pair of castanets. Damru. A small wooden or clay instrument, in the shape of an hourglass, covered at both ends with leather, having a ball attached to its middle by a string, so that, when the Damrii is turned quickly with the hand, the ball strikes the ends alternately, and produces a sound like a small drum. Dholak. Like the Madal, played with both hands. Mohali. A kind of pipe or flageolet, peculiar to the Khusliya caste. Tamra. A small kettledrum. ...
