Rast Sound has released Master Tambur, a Middle Eastern string instrument for Kontakt.
They say that the term Tanbur can refer to various long-necked string instruments originating in Mesopotamia, Southern or Central Asia. Three figurines have been found in Susa that belong to 1500 BC, and in hands of one of them is a tanbur-like instrument.
A spokesperson told us, "Epic Middle Eastern string, dating back 3500 years, is now available with its sheer beauty. Recorded with a master performer, Tanbur library offers playable solo articulations, phrase plays, wealth of rare performances & patterns."
