Originating from Northern Punjab, the Tumbi has been used in Punjabi folk music and is now very popular with Bhangra. It is a one string instrument with a high pitched sound created when the string is plucked. The instrument comprises of a wooden stick which is mounted onto a toomba or wooden resonator covered with skin. The metallic string is placed over the stick and resonator and is flicked to create a sharp pitched sound. A high quality wooden tumbi is perfect for any stage performance as it represents original Punjabi folk music and can be used as a gimmick to give a traditional feel to a performance.
