We are very proud to present the second instalment of Istanbul Cumbush a collection of traditional cumbush melodies that have been professionally played by exceptional musicians to reflect its unique and characteristic sounds.
The cumbush is a Turkish stringed instrument of relatively modern origin. It was developed in 1930 by Zeynel Abidin Cumbush (1881-1947) as a fretless oud-like instrument that could be heard as part of a larger ensemble. It is shaped like an American banjo, with a spun-aluminium resonator bowl and skin soundboard. Although originally configured as an oud, the instrument has been converted to other instruments by attaching a different set of neck and strings.
In detail expect to find 476 MB of raw content featuring 156 beautifully played Cumbush loops from 80 to 130 BPM and includes a dry version (w/o any additional e.q, compressor, or reverb effects) and wet version of each, giving a total of 186 files. All loops are key and tempo-labelled for ease of use. All sounds are ready to fit straight in your tracks.
This instrument can be used accompanying other instruments and is perfectly usable in a 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!
