Plucked Strings - Others Moroccan Sintir

The sintir has a body carved out of a wooden log, a long round neck with 3 gut strings, the middle string being the shortest, and has a camel skin covered resonator. The gut strings are plucked downward with the knuckle side of the index finger and the inside of the thumb, creating a strongly percussive tone. Often the player attaches dangling metal rings and other devices which add a buzzing element to the tone.
