Thanx for the share!

Interesting overtones, resonance (delay) and dissonace. Strong arabic scale it seems, but no surprise as it is built in Turkey. Would be fun to try this one out def!

On the more funny side... the instrument in its executution looks like on of the comic character Viggo (Norwegian name) instruments... damn Franquin was a great artist.

Viggo (Norwegian name)

Ha ! Funny, his original french/belgian name his "Gaston".

About the Yaybahar, that's an awesome instrument, I would like to try my hands at doing something similar, or at least tensing a spring attached to a drum head.
