FEATURE: A short wire, tied to one of the low frets terminates in two hooks. These hooks are used to hold the low bass stings down, and out of the way, during fast passages. As an example: when the number 4 string is tuned to low Sa, 2 octaves below middle C, the string is quite loose and can rattle during fast passages. Tucking the string under the hook, stops it from rattling when the other strings are being played. When used, the hook creates two notes on the string; one note above and one below the hook. Even though you are not playing the string under the hook, it could resonate sympathetically while you play, so make sure the two notes have a pleasant intonation.
Accessories: Includes extra string set, mizrabs, information and tuning guide and padded gig bag.
PleaseNote: Decorations and colors will vary. These are all individually made and will be unique.

SPECIAL NOTE ON STRINGS:
There is no warranty on strings. Manufacturers recommend that you change the strings on your instrument as soon as you receive it. Your instrument has completed a long journey before it ever begins the final leg to your home. During this time the elements affect the strings and may shorten their lifespan. It occasionally happens that a string will fail during that final leg of the journey. Therefore, it is recommended that you purchase a replacement set of strings and consider changing your strings soon after it arrives. If you are a student you may want to change your strings every 3-4 months. If you are a rock star you may need to change your strings every week. If you store your instrument, you should consider changing the strings when you pick it up again.
Scratch & Dent
What is BLEMISHED?
Our product codes ending in "-1(S)" or "-2(S)" are blemished. These products are new and unused with superficial blemishes that may include, blisters in the finish, scratches, dents, stains, discoloration, rust or pitting on metals, imperfect glazes, non-structural repairs such as putty in nail holes, or other surface marks. A "-1(S)" product has minor blemishes and a "-2(S)" product has moderate blemishes and/or minor repairs. The irregularity does not affect the playability or sound quality of the instrument.
Product codes ending in "-3(S)" and "-4(S)" are also new and unused, but came to us needing repairs. If it's a "-3(S)," the product has been repaired, but if it's a "-4(S)," it will still require significant repairs when received by the customer.
Our product codes ending in "PROP" are unable to be played and are for display purposes only.
Please note: For safety during shipping, we don't tune our string instruments before sending to customers.
