Mohammed Waseem Concert Sitar

Custom headstock

Kharaj pancham (Ravi Shankar) style

From one of the premier instrument makers in Miraj, Waseem is by far the best carver and designer in India since Kanailal & brother.

Aged tun/mahogany wood, single piece Miraj gourds. Natural fittings and bridges. Finish is shellac and very thin providing a nice sound. Green/black celluloid with extensive penwork and fancy tar gahan and beads. Custom made fiberglass case with larger top tumbi. Vintage style scroll carving on headstock with side mounted main pegs. A very nice instrument!

Sound is resonant and responsive with 1/2 open jawari. Waseems bodies are easy to handle and not too heavy. He makes his langot similar to a tanpura style string mount so no loops needed for main strings. Secondary and final fitting done here at the edge of the world by yours truly.

I've known Waseem for a very long time and happy to now be offering his instruments. We visit yearly and are in constant touch, the instruments are a nice combination of both of our skills together!

Waseems instruments are each unique so there are no carbon copies although a nearly exact model can be ordered if desired.

Air shipped (always) and fiberglass included, shipping will vary depending on your location. We have a waiting list for these, please email to be notified when the next one is available.
