Santur For Kids

The santur, also written santour, is a hammered dulcimer with a range of approximately three octaves. It consists of a hollow trapezoidal body made of wood, with 72 strings stretched across it in three sections of nine pitches. The santur player strikes the strings using two featherweight felted wooden hammers—one held between the thumb and forefinger of each hand.
