The enthir is square-shaped. It is played from above, the strings being plucked as it sits on the player's lap. It is possible to strum the instrument, although some consider this an improper technique. Hoid, as Wit, is seen playing an enthir in Kholinar on Roshar during the reappearance of Taln.
During the initial vote to dissolve the Diem at the Taisha Meeting Hall in Kezare on Taldain, a man wearing a dark, hooded cloak is seen busking outside using a stringed instrument. Hoid is known to have been on Taldain during this time period and the instrument in question is confirmed to be related to the enthir. This version of the instrument looks similar to a sitar, except that it has an angular body. It has a long, fretted neck and tuning pegs on the headstock, along with additional tuning pegs along the neck. The man appears to be playing the instrument while held vertically, rather than on his lap.
