Hi, I'm wondering about the difference between indian santur and persian santur (the one used in middle-east region to play makams). What are the pros and cons of each one of them? I like very much the sound and like to buy one, but don't know which one can be better, mainly because I would like to play both, indian music and middle-east makam music. Which one could suit better for this? How about the tunings?
Thank you very much in advance!

Isn't the Persian one wider & not so many strings?
Also may I presume different mallets are used to hit the strings with???
