Professional, Paloma brand, electric shahi baaja.  This instrument combines a 5 string bulbul tarang with and integral 10 string swarmandal.   The solid body is made of toon wood (Cedrela toona). 

There are 3 drone strings that run between the 2 main strings and the 10 swarmandal style strings. The 2 main string are strummed or plucked by the right hand, while the fingers of the left hand depresses the keys to change the notes.  The 30 typewriter-style keys are coded black and white, similar to piano keys.  The 10 drone strings are strummed like a swarmandal.

The instrument comes with all required cords and accessories and is compatible with most guitar amplifiers.    There is a double pick up with tone and volume control.  The instrument is over 36-inches long. 

Tune the shahi baaja to C. The 2 melody strings tune to G. The third white key from the bottom is your tonic C. The 3 strings are the drones; tune these to C-G-C.  The 10 string representing the swarmandal can be tuned from low to high: C-C-C-Eb-F-G-G-Bb-C-C.  You may find many tuning that work.

There is no warranty on strings. Manufacturers recommend that you change the strings every 3-4 months. It is always a good idea to keep an extra set of stings to replace any that may break. You should always wipe down your strings with a clean dry cloth after use. If you store your instrument, you should consider changing the strings when you pick it up again.
