    "Istanbul Lavta" by Earthtone
We proudly present our latest release “Istanbul Lavta” is a plucked string music instrument from Istanbul.

“Lavta” has a small body made of many ribs using carvel bending technique, looking like a small oud with a longer neck and has more frets which are less evenly spaced in order to produce the quartertone notes of makams in Turkish music. It has only 7 nylon strings in 4 courses and the tuningpegs are violin shaped, with 3 on the right side and 4 on the left side of the open tuning head. The bridge usually has mustache-like ends and the fingerboard is flush with the soundboard, which is often unvarnished.

In detail expect to find 506MB of raw content featuring 90 beautifully played “Lavta” loops at 90/110/130bpm and includes a dry version (w/o any additional e.q, compressor or reverb effects) and wet version of each, giving a total of 180 files. All loops are Key and tempo labeled for ease of use. All sounds are ready to fit straight in your tracks.

This instrument can be used accompanying other instruments and perfectly usable in variety of musical genres whether you’re producing world music, ethnic & organic folk music, experimental, cinematic, ambient, meditation, live lounge, electronica or even hip hop also suitable for film score, documentaries and media compositions as well - the only limit is your imagination!

Please Note: This is a “Lavta” pack ONLY, other sounds contained within this Demo are for illustration purposes only.
