Abstract

An Indian Bulbul Tarang: a 5 stringed-instrument; classified as a zither. Branded as "Kasuga Harp". 3 of the strings are broken; age and wear have rendered the instrument virtually unplayable. There is an unusual "A" shaped plastic ring in the soundhole. The songbooks are nearly identical in both look and content, although, one is considerably shorter than the other. They are written in Thai.
