Persian setar is one of the truest, most characteristic instrument of Persian traditional music. It is a small lute, played with a flat pick. Persian setar is like a western mandolin but with a longer neck. This instrument originally had three strings. However, it has changed through time, now it has four strings and its frets vary between 22 and 28. Persian setar is played with the index finger’s long nail. When it is strummed, it gives the melody and drone together. Persian setar has a soft timbre, but sometimes it can become loud and vigorous.
Setar's soundbox is covered with thin wood and its long neck is completed with four strings. It has a wide melodic range, which is very distinguishing. Its range is almost more than twenty scale degrees. Traditionally it is played with the right hand's index fingernail. But performers of Persian setar have introduced new techniques in this century. Their brave attitude towards setar gave it a whole new meaning. The left-hand playing technique with other aspects including the shape covered with relatively thin wood improved the sound.
Our setars are classified as standard, professional and special setars depending on the needs of the musician. The setars in our catalogue are made by the best setar makers who have mastered their craft.
It comes with a soft case and extra strings.
