This wonderful sounding instrument was perfect for what I was looking for…

“I was looking for some authentic Thai instruments, especially tuned percussion, and came across the excellent Ranat Ek from Etched Sounds. This wonderful sounding instrument was perfect for what I was looking for. It’s flexible with the tuning featuring traditional Thai tuning as well as Western tuning, and there are a wide selection of mic positions. It is exquisitely recorded and sits well in any mix, plus the instrument has an array of effects. The tremolo feature is also incredibly useful. Highly recommended! I can’t wait to see what Etched Sounds produce next!”
