The dilruba is a bowed instrument with steel strings. In India, it is used in classical music.

Perfect for a decor item. SPECIAL NOTE: No Warranty on Strings: Manufacturers recommend that you change the strings on your instrument as soon as you receive it. Your instrument has completed a long journey before it ever begins the final leg to your home. During this time the elements affect the strings and may shorten their lifespan. It occasionally happens that a string will fail during that final leg of the journey. Therefore, it is recommended that you purchase a replacement set of strings and consider changing your strings soon after it arrives. If you are a student you may want to change your strings every 3-4 months. If you are a rock star you may need to change your strings every week. If you store your instrument, you should consider changing the strings when you pick it up again.

Tips on Learning Your Instrument Faster
It seems a lot of people are obsessed with anything relating to the word "fast." Fast food, fast cash...why, even learning an instrument has become faster. Although personally I don't have anything against short cuts, I still believe that if you want to achieve something, you have to work hard for it. The short cuts are there just in case you need it but it shouldn't always be your first option.
In learning a musical instrument, I have come up with "The Three P's" for you to remember if you want to master your instrument faster.
Listen and give your instructor your full attention when you're in class. Bring a notebook and pen and jot down any information, tips or advice your instructor has that will further help your music playing. Ask your instructor if you have any questions or point of clarification.
Learning an instrument is hard at the beginning so you must be very patient with yourself. Don't be discouraged if for the first few months you feel you're making slower progress than the rest of your class. Each of us learn differently and it doesn't necessarily mean that if you learn slower you're not as good as them. Stick to your lessons and you'll be surprised at how much you've improved in the end.
Ahhh, every music student will hear this saying, "Practice makes perfect." It's true, the more you practice playing your instrument, the better you become at it. Set a time each day for practice and discipline yourself to stick to your schedule. You'll see, in no time you'll be playing beautiful music and you'll be pleased with the progress you've made.
