The one stringed lute has a wooden bowl for a reasonator with a sound hole on its side. The string is strained with a peg but final tuning is achieved by means of a straining string. It is bowed by a reed or bamboo bow with spittle and the fingering is achieved by gripping the string with the inside of the second segment of the second and fourth fingers.
