The Persian Santur is a trapezoid-shaped instrument with 72 strings and a 3 octave range. Similar types of instrument could be found all over the world; "Santoor" in India, "Yang qin" in China, "Hammered Dulcimer" in England and "Hackbräde" in Sweden. They are all slightly different in the amount of strings and the timbre but with similar constructions.

Precisionsound has sampled the Persian Santur with 2 types of mallets in 3 velocities, "Santur 1" (hard mallets) and "Santur 2" (soft mallets). You also get a huge set of different glisses, fx both tonal and percussive divided into 6 programs.
