The Taran

The Taran in Madagascan Rosewood

 

The Taran is the smallest of the range. Just slightly smaller than OM, the Taran is a beautifully intimate instrument. Predominately a finger style instrument, while small in body size, its voice is big, bell-like and powerful even to the lightest touch.
