Kanun-  Turkey
The Kanun is an oriental zither. In contrast to the related instrument that is played in the Alpine countries this instrument is strung with gut- oder nylon strings. Interestingly the bridge does not stand on the wooden soundboard but on a parchment (drum skin), similar to the banjo. This results in a very characteristic tone.
