Buy Sarod for sale. Sarod is a String Instrument mainly used in Indian Classical Music and has been derived from rebab. It is not very old, about 150 to 200 years only. The sarod is known for a deep, weighty, introspective sound and that is why it is also called as bass rebab. In Persian, Sarod means beautiful sound or melody. It has a metal fingerboard with no frets and can produce slides between the notes, hence it is the most preferred instrument.
