Tunings for yaylı tanbur
« on: November 22, 2011, 05:20:13 PM »
Hi Everyone,

I thought I would post about the current tunings I'm using for bowed tanbur and would also be interested in other people's take on this subject.

For bolahenk:  If in Rast/Nihavend/Nikriz or other makamlar with karar on the note rast, I usually tune (lowest course to highest) DA DD AA; For Uşşâk/Hüseyni/Muhayyer/Hicaz/Saba or other makamlar with karar on Dügah DA EE AA or DA ED AA

For Kız:   If in Rast/Nihavend/Nikriz or other makamlar with karar on the note rast, I usually tune (lowest course to highest) AA EE AA; For Uşşâk/Hüseyni/Muhayyer/Hicaz/Saba or other makamlar with karar on Dügah AA BE AA or AA EE AA

I found I get some nice overtones with makamlar such as Hicaz and Uşşâk by tuning one of my middle "drone" strings to the karar and another to the yeden.  Any thoughts on this are very appreciated.
