5 String Antique Tanbour

Tämbür- 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.Product Details:Length: 90cmNumber of strings: 5Includes:A muqam poster
