First Introduced in Iran the Santoor has put down its roots in Kashmir, but has later spread throughout the subcontinent.  The original form of the instruments had over 100 strings and has been referenced in the ancient Vedic literature. The modern Santoor (Persian), usually made of Walnut holds around 70 strings, made of steel, which are struck with 2 specially shaped wooden mallets. The sound emitted is not too dissimilar to the harp or harpsichord.
