text: The great log drum, almost filling the morung, is very similar to those we have seen in Pangsha and Noklak. It is a mighty wooden tube, with two small holes instead of a slit in the upper side. Neither Mills nor I have ever seen such an immense drum, for it has a diameter of about four feet, and a man can sit quite comfortably in the mouth.
