The mangtong (Chinese: 芒筒; pinyin: mángtǒng) is a Chinese end-blown free reed wind instrument. It is used primarily by the Miao and Dong ethnic groups of the southern Chinese provinces of Guizhou and Guangxi, although it is sometimes used in contemporary Chinese compositions for the traditional instrument orchestra.

The instrument consists of a lusheng, serving as the bass instruments of that ensemble.

A modernized version of the mangtong, called gǎigé mángtǒng (Chinese: 改革芒筒; literally: "reformed mangtong"), was developed in the 20th century.[1]
