the tanbur neck is adjustable, as are the strings and bridge of course.
the result is that there are a variety of ways to set it; i've lowered
the action to the extent that i need to apply hiss control filtering to
get rid of string rattle - on the other hand, this allows me to play
faster and with more complexity. i'm clumsy on the quarter-tones, but i
find resonant intervals among them that create melodic clusters. the
tanbur itself has 48 frets; the yayli tanbur has 56.
