Tri-tantri Veena

The Tri-tantri Veena, known as the Jantra in medieval times and also known as the tri-tantrika, had three strings and no frets. Dr Lalmani Misra, in his book Bharatiya Sangeet Vadya, traces the roots of the Sitar to this instrument. It is also argued that the modern form of the Tanpura can be traced to the Tri-tantri Veena (The Oxford Encyclopaedia of the Music of India).
