SandouriThe Greek version of the dulcimer. Another fully chromatic instrument with the range E-b2. Again the tuning system is different, a different logic. Strings are wound and plain, steel and bronze. It is medium sized, about 1 metre wide and 500mm front to back. As the strings are quite heavy, the strain on the case is large and it must be built strongly to compensate.
