  2. 2. The ranat ek (Thai: , pronounced [ranâːt ʔèːk], "alto xylophone") is a Thai xylophone. It has 22 wooden bars suspended by cords over a boat- shaped trough resonator, and is played with two mallets. It is used as a leading instrument in the piphat ensemble. The ranat ek is played by two types of mallets. The hard mallets create the sharp bright sound when they keys are hit.The hard mallets are used for faster playing. The soft mallets create a mellow and softer tone which is used for slower songs. ranat ek bars are typically made from rosewood (Dalbergia oliveri; Thai: ; mai ching chan), although in rare instances instruments with bamboo bars can be found. Some ranat ek players are able to play two instruments at the same time, placed at right angles to each other. The ranat ek is very similar to a Cambodian xylophone called roneat ek.

Beautiful lyrics written by contemporary poets were fitted into melodies of the Ayutthaya period. All Thai musicians in the past received their training from their teachers, through constant playing and singing in their presence. With nothing else to rely upon except their own memory, it was only through much hard work that they gained their technical experience and practical knowledge in playing and singing.
