We are currently restoring Gender Wayang set #5 which consists of four instruments, but keys only as the original casings no longer exist.

We are in the process of trying to get funding to embark on a restoration project of a historic Javanese gamelan with Chinese connections and rare pakurmatan-style instruments that dates back to the early 1800s.
