The santoor is an indo-persian trapezoid-shaped hammered dulcimer or string musical instrument generally made of walnut, usually with seventy-two strings. It is the national musical instrument of Iran and a traditional instrument in Jammu and Kashmir. It is played with a pair of light wooden mallets held with both hands. The santoor is a very delicate instrument and is very sensitive to light strokes and glides. The strokes are played always on the strings either closer to the bridges or a little away from bridges. Both styles result in different tones.
