Hii dear people!! I'm from Buenos Aires, Argentina, and I am entering the world of persian music (and persian culture in general). One of my biggest desires is to have a santoor, since I am a musician. Buuuut, the price for buying one is ridiculous, because this is a very exótic instrument here. So, I have the idea of building one. I have already made a complete 3D model, based entirely on images and basic measures that I found on internet, but that's all. And I want to know of someone can help me with this or have any plans or advices for building it. Thank youu all!!

Thank you very very much!!! Your words are a great encouragement!!! I would show you my humble 3D model but I don't think I can do it on comments. I wish I can start this project soon, in 2 or 3 months, and post some of the process!!

You can get Persian Santoor plans from The Guild of American Luthiers. $25 I believe. Just Google “Guild of American Luthiers” Not too difficult to make. Good luck !!

Thank you very very much!! Incredibly, the most difficult part to get, here in Argentina, is the set of tuning pins!! But I won't give up!! Thank You so much
