Sarod

The sarod is an Indian version of banjo and rabab. Like a banjo, it is a stringed instrument with the soundboard made of goat-skin. However, the overall design is similar to the rabab. Unlike the rabab, this instrument contains several resonating sympathetic strings, has no frets, and most of the action of this instrument is done by sliding the finger tip or finger nail against the metal fingerboard. The overall instrument is made of wood.
