organs: bass

Lisu fulu na o, Lahu naw seu

Lisu player, Phrao

only 2  pipes below the gourd and only 1 open for ornamentation (in mine all pipes are closed at the protruding end). A drone is played throughout. They are tuned to 4 note scale with octave doubling.  Mine is tuned C#F#BC#F. One I recorded is tuned A flat G E flat  D E flat. A falling riff consisting of Aflat, G, E flat (or an equivalent) is repeated over and over again. P

layed to accompany dancing.

This is the least popular of the reed organs as the sound does not carry and it takes more energy to blow.
