The Dilruba is a bowed instrument that shares its roots with Sarangi, but it is a more recent invention (19th century).
This instrument has a neck similar to sitar, but smaller, with curved sitar frets and sympathetic strings. The bridge is seated on leather skin stretched over the soundbox of the instrument.
Most Dilrubas have 3 iron or bronze playing strings and 11 sympathetic strings. The playing strings are played with a violin bow, or a Sarangi bow (with convex's tension) held in the right hand. The price for this instrument includes a carrying case and accessories (bow).
Price: $350.00 (plus packing, shipping and handling).
