History: The sape comes from the lute family, an instrument with short neck.
Made from soft meranti wood.
The sape has quite an elongated body which is hollowed out and functions as a resonator.
The shape of the body looks like a sampan/boat, often called the boat lute in Western countries.
Kayan and Kenyah tribes are mainly seen playing such instruments in Sarawak, Borneo.
Originally , sape strings were made from the Sago tree but now these have been replaced by nylon strings.
