Setar is one of the Iranian musical instruments and belongs to the category of wound (mezrabi) string instruments.
Instruments such as strings, fiddles, and string strings are also called bound wounds. To play this group of instruments, every time we press one of the strings on a point of the instrument with our left hand, we change the length of the vibrating string and consequently change the note or sound of the string. So each string is able to play several notes.
Whereas in stringed instruments, the absolute wounds of each string play only one note. (In a fixed tuning, each string is used to create the sound of only one note, such as the dulcimer and the rule)
Setar is made of wood, metal, gutter and nylon thread.
The bowl is usually made of mulberry wood and the handle is generally made of walnut wood. The top of the screen is usually made of mulberry wood and in some cases of spruce wood and the earphones are usually made of walnut wood and in some cases of rose wood or ebony.
The number of setar curtains is 25 to 28. Today’s setar has four strings. This instrument is played with the fingernail of the right hand. It is a setar that is used both as a solo and as a group.
Although setar is known from the tanbur family, it is practically closer to tar, as tar musicians are usually familiar with setar.
Setar is also known as one of the most suitable choices to accompany Iranian song.
