HAND MADE PERSIAN SANTOOR
Santoor (Santur) is very old Musical Instrument, it was neither depicted in miniatures, nor presented in any other medium until the nineteenth century and therefore the origin of the instrument is not clear. It is a trapezoid-shaped box made of either of these woods (walnut, rosewood, betel palm, etc.), with 72 to 93 or more strings. The front and the back of the instrument are connected by sound posts whose positions play an important role in the sound quality of the instrument. The name means one hundred strings in Persian. The special-shaped mallets (mezrab) are lightweight and are held between the index and middle fingers. A typical Santur has two sets of bridges, providing a range of three octaves. The right-hand strings are made of brass, while the left-hand strings are made of steel.
The Santoor (Santur) is an instrument indigenous to Iran, Iraq and Kashmir. Perhaps as old as the harp, the ancient Santur was simply a kind of a harp struck by mallets. The term Santur is said to be of Persian origin, probably a derivative of the word "Sadtar" which means "instrument with a hundred strings". Similar instruments to the Persian Santur can be found in almost every part of the world. They all differ in shape and range: Santoor in India, Sandouri in Greece, Santur in Iraq, Yang qin in China, Cimbalom in Hungary and hammered dulcimer in England. Most of the Santurs found in the countries close to Iran are larger than the Persian Santur.
The Persian Santur is a trapezoid-shaped instrument . The strings are divided into 18 to 20 quadruple sets, where (bronze/copper) are in the lower register and (steel) are in the middle register. The strings are connected to the sound box by breaches, which enable the instrument to attain a higher octave on the left side of the middle register and provides a range of 3/5 octaves. The left bridges which support the treble courses are positioned at two thirds of the string length. This enables the player to produce two notes from the each treble course. Striking on the right hand side of the left bridge will produce the fundamental. Striking on the left side of the left bridge will produce the relative fifth. The bridges on the right side of the instrument carry the bass courses. They only produce the fundamental. A pair of light wooden mallets held in each hand produces the sound of the Santur by striking the strings.
