Tanbur Panj Simi (Five-Stringed Tanbur)

Ostad invented a singular five-stringed tanbur, which enabled him to synthesize the tanbur’s sacred repertoire with that of classical Persian music. Featuring a slightly larger body and neck, the first two rows of strings reproduce the configuration of the tanbur, while of the other two strings, one is in unison with the high-pitch and the other with the low octave, like the setar.
