*Sarangi (1900) ~ A beautiful full sound and a close proximity to the melodic flexibility of the human voice make the sarangi the most important bowed instrument of classical Hindustani music of northern India and Pakistan. A rigid horsehair bow (not shown) rhythmically sounds the gut melody strings that cross over an ivory elephant-shaped bridge (bara ghurac).
Qeychak / Qichak ~ It is one of the ancient Iranian classical instruments. The oldest sample instrument still remaining is comprised of a dual box and the surface of the lower one is covered by a hide. The produced tune is first transferred from the lower box to the upper one, from where it is broadcast through two wide openings.
Shourangiz Shourangiz is one of Ustad Ganbarimehr’s innovations. It is a combination of animal skin and wood for the sound board which has been applied to Tar, Tanbour and Barbat. The main character of this combination is ofcourse the volume and mellowness of the instrument sound. The skin that is used in this instrument is much thicker than the skin on Tar and that makes it less vulnerable to climate changes.
Dohol /Davul ~ It is a big drum covered by a piece of goat hide. It is usually played in accompaniment to sorna in the villages, agricultural areas and plains and is made in various sizes. Its greater version is commonly played in Baluchestan. Dohol is played by a rather long wooden or osseous rod on one side, while on the other side tunes are produced by plucking the instrument with a few small bones tied to the fingers of the player.
