The Chod Damaru is a traditional Bhutanese hand drum made from a hollowed-out piece of bawa wood. It has two small drumheads at either end, which are struck with a pair of wooden beaters to produce a unique, high-pitched sound. This sound is believed to have spiritual significance in Bhutanese culture and is often used in religious ceremonies and rituals.
