The highlight of the cumbus saz, is a aluminum or copper bowl, that skin is stretched over it; quite similar to the american banjo. The cumbus saz is tuned like standard saz, but can be tuned to many other alternative tuning such as C-G-C tar wise. 

In modern pieces, the sazbus is used by the Armenian composer Era Dinkjian that who play it also in his ensemble ‘Night Ark’. Sazbus as a instrument, was a big success in the tradiotional turkish parties of the 40’s. For the gypsy musicians who played in huge weddings, it was perfect as  the oud and the saz always disappear in big spaces, especially when played with loud instruments such as trumpets drums and so. For them, the cumbus saz was just the perfect solution.
