- the longest of the Uyghur lutes at around 90cm, the tämbür has five metal strings tuned so-so-do-so-so. The melody is played on the double right-hand strings, using a metal pick (nakhäla) on the index finger. The tämbür is sometimes used as principal instrument in the muqam, as well as for folksongs, narrative songs and instrumental pieces.
While designed for a professional musician, the artisanal craftsmanship and beauty of the Tanbour will appeal to all art collectors as a beautiful and traditional piece.
Number of strings: 5
Includes:A muqam poster
