Borislavovich with will tamboura To know some a little more about "The Bulgarian Tamboura":
This popular instrument of the cordophones, of presumedly Turkish origin or Perso-Arabic, the tamboura is widespread especially in the south-east of Bulgaria and the area of the mountain of Pirine.
The tamboura has the shape of a pear. Its case is made of sycamore or pear tree. The higher table of the case is bored of two or several openings of resonance.

Throughout the key, are laid out of the made hoops of metal string, of bowels of sheep or linen thread. Their number depends on dimensions and of the species of the tamboura and varies between 12 and 18. The strings of the tamboura are out of metal, rolled up of a copper wire, which makes the tone soft and tender. To produce sounds, one grips them using a small plate of bark of griottier.
The Bulgarian tambouras has different size, with the number of strings, the agreement and the positions varied. Nowadays, the tamboura it most widespread is that with 8 cords, 18 hoops, with the chromatic agreement and of a great extent. Formerly, the tamboura players were only men and they were accompanied some while singing. In the contemporary orchestras and sets, the tamboura generally creates the harmony and marks the rate/rhythm. However, it makes it possible to the skilful instrumentalists to interpret solos of remarkable technique and virtuosity.
