Angklung it self is made of a pair mounted bamboo tubes which give an octave sound when shaken. The tubes are supported in a square frame, also made of bamboo. Each tube is split open about two-thirds of its length. The bottom of the tube is closed by a node, with two tongues below it, so shaped when the bottom is cut. The tongues sit in a small trough in the base of the frame and move back and forth freely when the instrument is shaken sideways, the sound being created by concussion.
