The Saz is the most important instrument in Turkey. Although similar in shape to the Greek Bouzouki, the construction, size and sound of the Saz is different. In its design, it is basically a long-necked lute with frets that are tied onto the neck. However, the Saz is unique in the sound the it produces, making it the only instrument capable of playing the unique tones of Arabic music. It has eight strings in three courses. Courses are groups of strings tuned to the same note. It can be tuned in various ways and takes different names according to region and size, with the Baglama Saz being the most prevalent.

Our Cumbus are imported from famous brand shops in Turkey. The Cumbus is a relatively young instrument. It was developed in Istanbul in the early 1900's. The inventor, Zeynel became known as Zeynel Abidin Bey. Cumbus is Turkish for revelry, just the mood this instrument inspires. Almost any Oud tuning can be used. Imported from Turkey, and crafted by reputable makers, our selection of Saz & Cumbus offer authentic instruments at an affordable price. All on sale with Free Shipping.
