A santur (SAHN-toor) was a Zakharan instrument similar to the hammered dulcimer.[1]


The santur was similar in appearance to the qanun, being a trapezoidal stringed instrument. Unlike the qanun, the strings of the santur were single strings and not wound. They were made from metal and struck, not plucked, with special hammers.[1]


The santur was a favored instrument of the Pearl Cities region of Zakhara. This fact alone made its use frowned upon within the Pantheist League.[1]
