Vichitra veena is an Indian classical music plucked string instrument. From the been it has kept the flat bridge (jawari), the two pumpkin resonators (thumbas), a body, hollow tube made of teak wood on which the strings are fixed at both ends. Because of the absence of frets, one can play perfect meends (glissandos) on a octave and a half, something difficult to perform on a been, and so get closer to the abilities of the human voice.
The been or veena has always been the instrument of Indian classical music and more precisely dhrupad. The been is made of a body, a hollow tube made of teak wood, on which the strings are fixed at both ends. The bridge is a flat bridge, multiplying the depth of the note\'s spectrum. Two resonators made out of pumkins are placed on each side of the instrument, not far from the two ends of the body.
