• Saz

  • Tyrkisk nasjonalinstrument med alt for mange bånd som også dekker kvarttoner. Saz blander seg fint med feler og andre strengeinstrumenter og jeg har brukt min blant annet til å spille norsk folkemusikk på skolekonserter. Fra Wikipedia: There is a whole family of this type of instrument that is different in shape and dimensions. The sazi of this picture measures 1.10m in length, and its tuning knots are wooden. It is made of mulberry wood that is usually carved. It has 3 double strings and can be tuned up in 4ths. Its neck (tastiera) is divided into commas by the berdedes. Usually in the traditional musical instruments there are certain differences from place to place in the type of materials used, the way that the instruments are manufactured, the tuning, the shape, the size, the name of the method of playing, etc.
