Description: The bedug [in Indonesian: beduk; in Javanese: bedhug] is one of the drums used in the gamelan. It is used among Muslims in Java for religious purposes. The bedhug is large double-barrel shaped drum having water buffalo leather stretched on either side.
Unlike the more frequently used kendang, the bedug is suspended from a rap and played with a padded mallet. The drum has pegs holding the two identical heads in place similar to the Japanese taiko.
