Persian Setar : Setar is one of the truest, the most characteristic instrument of Persian traditional music. It is a small lute, played with a flat pick. 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. Setar is played with the index finger’s long nail. When it is strummed, it gives the melody and drone together. Setar has a soft timbre, but sometimes it can become loud and vigorous. If you like the mystical sound of setar, we recommend you to check our catalogue and pick one of our setars through our selection. 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 best setar makers who have mastered their craft. We believe you will find here the most convenient setar for yourself at the best value.
The Setar strings are tuned by turning the tuning pegs that hold the strings. The main playing Setar strings are fine-tuned by sliding a bead fit around each string.
