Product Info

Traditional stringed instrument from the Middle East

Qanun is a wooden psaltery originating from the Orient, strung with 63 to 84 strings. The instrument has a very long history, because first illustrations can be found already in the Syrian lexicon of Hassan Bar Bahlul from the 10th century. The characteristic sound of the qanun, still plays an important role in both traditional and modern oriental music.
