Sale of Sarod. Sarod is one of the Stringed Musical Instruments found in India. Just like Sitar, it is widely used in Hindustani(North-Indian) Classical Music. It is assumed to be around 200 years old and hence not an ancient instrument. Sarod in Persian means a beautiful sound or melody. Sarod has been derived from Rebab but its sound is deeper and heavier than a rubab and for this reason it is also known as “bass rabab”. It is a Fretless instrument.
