SANTOOR
The santoor is an Indian stringed musical instrument which is trapezoid-shaped hammered dulcimer often made of walnut, with seventy strings. The special-shaped mallets (mezrab) are lightweight and are held between the index and middle fingers. A typical santoor has two sets of bridges, providing a range of three octaves.

The santoor is a hammered dulcimer, derived from the Persian santur (which is believed to be the first instrument of its type), and related to similar instruments in Iraq, Pakistan, India, Armenia, Turkey, and other parts of Asia. It is related to the shata-tantri veena of earlier times.

The Kashmiri santoor is more rectangular and can have more strings than the original Persian counterpart, which generally has 72 strings.

The sound chamber is also made of walnut ...more
