Description

Together with flutes and violins the Cobza traditionally has its place as rhythmic accompaniment in the Taraf, the Romanian folk music ensemble. But it is also well suited for improvising and fantasizing as a solo instrument as the fretless fingerboard allows for particularly expressive melodies. Apart from regional differences, the strings are usually tuned in intervals of fifths and fourths (d-a-d-g) and traditionally are plucked with a goose quill.

Our Cobza has eight strings in four courses. The top is made of solid spruce, the rest of solid maple. The body is a typical octagonal construction method and is decorated along the rim with a beautiful inlaid pattern.

Markus Wach sent us this video, playing our Cobza in a concert.
