Krapeu (Khmer: ក្រពើ; also called Takhe) is a crocodile-shaped fretted floor zither from Cambodia with three strings.

The word krapeu means "alligator" or "crocodile" in the Khmer language. It is probably the most recent of the Khmer classical instruments. The takhe usually has three to five legs supporting it.

The Krapeu is analogous to the Jakhe in Thai; both are used in the mahori ensemble. It is also similar to the Mi gyaung in Burmese, and the Kyam of Mon.
