The Saz is a chordophone and is a member of the long necked Lute family. Such long necked Lutes have an ancestry that can be traced as far back as the ancient cultures of Babylon and Sumeria. Today the Saz is the most important instrument of the Turkish folk. The Saz may even define the poetic heart of the Turkish people. Its general shape is similar to the Bouzouki and Oud. The traditional method of playing the Saz is to pluck with the fingers of the right hand and note the strings with the fingers, and occasionally the thumb, of the left hand. Today however, most players use a plastic plectrum to strum the strings. Professional players also use electronic pickups to amplify the sound. When playing with the fingers or a plectrum, players can add rhythm, by hitting the soundboard with the right hand.

Therefore, it is recommended that you purchase a replacement set of strings and consider changing your strings soon after it arrives. If you are a student you may want to change your strings every 3-4 months. If you are a rock star you may need to change your strings every week. If you store your instrument, you should consider changing the strings when you pick it up again.

Twin Spot Classic Pick Up by K & K Sound
Twin Spot Classic Pick Up by K & K Sound
This twin-head piezo transducer system can amplify a considerable number of instruments: Saz, Oud, Bouzouki, Balaleika, Cello, Dulcimer, Bongos, and many more. The twin-head system has distinctive advantages towards the single-head transducer: The positioning at 2 spots results in a more balanced sound structure. The frequency range is broader. The small heads with only 1.2" diameters allow an unobtrusive installation. Besides, small areas at the instrument can be reached. The professional transmission of the Jazz Guitar is achieved with the Twin Spot Classic. The two pickup disks are wedged at the left and right underneath the bridge. The characteristic sound is transferred with a strong output signal. This installation method, where the bridge is practically "standing" on the pickup, can also be applied with other string instruments that have similar bridges. Twin Spot Classic Universal Style Dual Small Head TransducerThe pickup head is attached with a special double-side adhesive film, which is UV resistant to ensure safe adhesion even after years of use. It is ultra-thin and enables the harmonic frequencies to completely pass through to the pickup disk. Technical Information Pickup head diameter: half inch. . . Height: 1/32" . . . Impedance: High ohmic . . . Length of connection cable: 1 ft. . . . Jack: Quarter inch, connected mono, with nylon shell and jack attachment.
