We are proud to present this unusual curiosity, a Sarinda, an instrument that originates from the Baluch people of Southern Afghanistan*. The shell shaped body features a small tackhead banjo head on the bottom, and a more traditional violin bridge further up; unusual engravings present. The neck is short, and has a very large and crude pegbox at the top; six tuners present. *thanks to customer and ethnomusicologist Peter Gold for the information on the Sarinda!
