  • THANK YOU! THIS HAS BEEN KILLING ME FOR MONTHS! I had no idea what it was called, or where it could be from -- I figured it was from around-ish the near east, but was not sure. Persian, so I guess you could call it an indo-european instrument... I've been thinking about getting one of those things, if I can -- it's my second favourite instrument (second only to the Koto.) – Matthew T. Scarbrough Apr 30 '17 at 19:38
