the long-necked saz is just that, a very long neck and deeper,
more resonant tones. this one is from 1961, repaired by Amir
Vahab, a brilliant musician/teacher in New York. in the pictures
the saz is in the pre-repair state, with the wrong pegs and
wrong setup.

i recorded using two sitar picks on my right-hand; my nails are
brittle at this point and the picks give their own tonalities to
the instrument. this is an improvised solo with the sound-hole
opened to emphasize the lower tones. while difficult to play,
the results are worth it, the deep quality of the tones resonate
amazingly with the music. i recorded this late at night on an
H4n Zoom, the music itself determining the length of the piece.
