The seven-string hallikset was a seven-stringed musical instrument consisting of a circular witherstring topboard and a fingerboard and nut. The musician Sudswater Dillifay Glon played a red seven-string hallikset as part of the Shag Kava band.
In the year 34 ABY, Glon played the hallikset at the castle of the pirate Maz Kanata on the planet Takodana, where the band performed the songs "Jabba Flow" and "Dobra Doompa" shortly before the castle was destroyed by the forces of the First Order. The musician preferred to play the hallikset with a bow while at Kanata's castle.
At some point during the war between the First Order and the Resistance following the Battle of Crait, the Ithorian antiques dealer Dok-Ondar had a seven-string hallikset on display on the upper shelves of his store, Dok-Ondar's Den of Antiquities, in Black Spire Outpost on the planet Batuu.
