Persian Robab / Rabab

History of Robab:

The rūbāb is a plucked instrument with 12 to 18 strings. In fact, the rūbāb has only six melody strings, and the rest of the strings are drone strings. The rūbāb is played by a pick made of an animal horn or sometimes plastic and has a soft and bass sound. Although the word “rūbāb” is seen in Persian classical literature especially in the poetries of Rumi; however, today this instrument is mostly considered as a local instrument of the Sistan and Baluchistan province, the southeastern Persia.
