‘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 565 MB of raw content featuring 93 beautifully played ‘Cumbush’ loops at 90, 110, 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 and 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!
