The Dan Tranh is a 16 stringed zither from Vietnam which is similar to the Chinese guzheng and the Japanese koto. The standard tuning of the Dan Tranh is of the major pentatonic scale. We present both pentanic and chromatic versions of this instrument. The Dan Tranh was re-tuned to each half step and sampled in order to create the chromatic version of this instrument.
Dan Tranh players pluck the strings with the right hand and bend the strings with the left hand to create a wide range of micro-tonal and tonal ornaments. Another common technique is glissando - these are very easily emulated in our Kontakt instrument by mapping the pentatonic scale to the raised black keys only.
