Changi

 

a Georgian plucked stringed instrument, an angular harp. The body of the changi resembles an elongated rectangle, to which is attached at a right angle a neck with tuning pegs. The instrument’s six to 11 strings are made of twisted horsehair or silk and vary in thickness. The six-string, or Svanetian, changi is widely used to accompany singing. The modern changi has 16 horsehair or 23 gut strings. Other modern types of changi are of different sizes and have 13 gut or nylon strings, which are tuned chromatically. The modern changi is used in the State Folksong and Folkdance Ensemble of the Georgian SSR, an orchestral group.
