Dutar

An interesting long-necked lute of Iran is dutar which means “two strings”. The manner of playing dotar is different than the other lutes, the strings are struck with the fingers of the right hand. Most dotars has 14 frets aligned chromatically, but in Eastern Khorasan three-quarter-tone intervals are used as well. The bowls of the dotars in our catalogue are made of mulberry, the necks are made of walnut wood. We provide you with unique, high-quality dotars.
