‘Tambur’ or ‘Tanbur’ is the common name used for the long necked instruments of the middle east, these instrument having different structures have spread to Iraq, Syria and Central Asia. This instrument is either played as solo or used to accompany love songs and epic performance. The Tambur, in our inventory (at the backside), hails from Afghanistan and has eleven resonance and six ordinary strings stabilised to the tuners, a long carved neck having twenty four frets made from nylon and a body having a deep core. Each string is arranged in a way that each of them passes over a bridge made of bone. Its wooden cover has a lot of voice holes on it.
