Tar has an old antiquity in Iranian music that usually is made of berry tree`s wood.But I made them by some other tree`s wood such as ash tree , acacia locust tree & apricot tree too, that have a good sound.
It`s handle is made of nut tree`s wood & I use tibia bone on that. It’s wire is made of sheep`s intestine & I use lamb`s skin on its belly & it`s bridge is made of mountain ram`s horn.
The best season for preparing the first level of Tar`s belly is Winter. At first we prepare the primary model of the first level of the Tar by the wood which is 100 Kg .At least we have to wait for three years to become dry completely. Then we cut the back and inside of Tar`s belly in different thickness, carefully. In next stages both sides of the belly stick to each other. The handle is placed in its place and the bone sticks on that after emerying we paint it after that it becomes dry completely, the skin, wires fixed on that. And it is ready for playing the pictures show it.
It was the summery of the stages for making Tar.
