11 MAIN STEEL STRING (DRONE). MADE WITH DRIED INDIAN WOOD - TUN WOOD. Sarangi produces one of most impressive sounds in all of the Indian Musical Instruments.With its unique keen, slightly nasal, melancholic sound it was a less important melody instrument for a long time which was used mainly for singing and dancing performances. Only in the previous century did the Sarangi also gain recognition as a solo instrument in classical music. Similar to the Esraj and the Dilruba, the Sarangi has a continuous wooden body which is covered by goat leather as a resonance cover. Over a horn fret which is fixed onto the leather cover run three thick gut strings. The instrument does neither have a fingerboard nor frets.
The strings are pressed down with the sides of the beds of the nails of index, middle and ring finger of the left hand. A relatively short bow sets the gut strings swinging. The resounding 35 steel sympathetic strings produce an echo effect that is typical for this instrument. PRITAM SINGH SPECIAL SARANGI CLASSICAL MODEL - ECC MODEL.
