Although I have never owned or seen a setar in my life (other than the one I now own) I do own a variety of other stringed instruments to base my perception on. The instrument is worth every penny from what I can see. There are imperfections here and there but the sound is what counts. This is not to say it is not a pretty instrument, rather it is wonderful to look at and a joy to play. It feels alive as I play it and the entirety of its shape vibrates with the strings. The strings, I was not aware of, are EXTREMELY light. In the first ten minutes of playing it I pulled too hard and broke a string (although it ships with a free pair luckily!). Would recommend to anyone looking to own a setar but not looking to break the bank. I have to say when it came in with the package with dings and knocks on it I got excited since it felt like it had come so far to be in my hands. The setar is a wonderful instrument, this particular one is bright and full sounding.Cheers!Also forgive my use of effects while playing in the video… I couldn’t help myself
I received the instrument earlier than I expected, which was great. It came with a nice soft case and extra strings that came very handy since I broke a string right away trying to tune it . The instrument is beautiful and it sounds amazing. I am extremely happy with my purchase and they certainly provide you with a quality instrument.

This is my first Setar and I am beyond impressed by the quality, sound and craftsmanship of this instrument! It sounds great and the walnut pegs hold the strings and tuning very well. The mulberry and walnut are just lovely and I have been enjoying learning on this Setar very much. Highly recommend you try one for yourself. Sala Musik the seller, delivered this to Texas soooooo fast I was blown away. It came packed very nicely and its obvious care went into both the shipping and the instrument itself. Get one. It’s good for the soul. 🙂

This is a great instrument, good quality for the price. It comes with extra strings. My advice is to get hard case for another $100. Thank you Sala!

It arrived intact and has a beautiful sound and looks great just like the other photos posted here. Broke one string, so be careful and don’t over do it. I bought a pack of 5 sets of strings on Amazon for a low price just in case. Very pleased and having fun!

The seller had good avices. Posted the 5th and arrived the 19th ! Very good package, magnificent instrument. Thank you for all. It will be a great Norouz.

Beautiful sound and beautiful to look at! This is a quality Persian setar at a budget price. If you already play guitar or another fretted instrument, you’ll be able to make some pleasing sounds on this right away. Lots of resources on the web about tuning, etc. The wood and finish on the instrument are extremely beautiful. The walnut neck is straight and strong–plays true all up and down the fretboard. Extremely well packed & fast shipping (about three weeks). Comes with two sets of replacement strings.(If you break a string, replacement is easy–but remember you can take the wooden tuning peg completely out of its hole, wind the end of the string around it with a little tension on it, then replace the tuning peg in the hole, pushing down a bit to seat it again–really easy!)
Very pretty instrument. Strings break easily, though.

So fun. So so fun! Guitar player for many years and this is after about 10 minutes messing around. If you are reading this far into reviews, you should buy it. Because its fun to play music.
