Imported from Turkey. Please note: Wood coloring and decorations may vary from the photograph. The cura is the smallest of the saz family with the highest pitch. It has a small body and short finger board Overall length is approximately 28-31 inches. Usually 6 metal strings are arranged 2 per course (3 courses). Tied, movable frets. A common tuning for the cura saz is A D G high to low pitch (thin to thick string, or bottom to top string) one octave above the baglama (bozuk duzen) Soft case included. String sets and plectrums are sold separately. Wood coloring and decorations may vary from the photograph. Actual Weight approximately 2 lbs.
NOTE: Expect the high gloss finish on the Turkish Saz to show dimples in the light. A perfectly smooth, unblemished, finish is nearly impossible to obtain with the technology employed in the Old-World finish process. These are handmade and such dimples are common and unavoidable.
SPECIAL NOTE ON STRINGS: There is no warranty on strings. Manufacturers recommend that you change the strings on your instrument as soon as you receive it. Your instrument has completed a long journey before it ever begins the final leg to your home. During this time the elements affect the strings and may shorten their lifespan. It occasionally happens that a string will fail during that final leg of the journey. Therefore, it is recommended that you purchase a replacement set of strings and consider changing your strings soon after it arrives. If you are a student you may want to change your strings every 3-4 months. If you are a rock star you may need to change your strings every week. If you store your instrument, you should consider changing the strings when you pick it up again.
