Hemen Mahogany/tun Sitar
decoration, dual color penwork concert sitar from Hemen
Sen. Ravi Shankar ~ Kharaj Pancham design, made from
This sitar was owned by a lovely lady who's
no longer with us. It was made in 1969 and in
storage for about 10 years before it found its way
here to us. I spent a year getting to know it and
completely rejuvenating it from the top down. It has
a new top gourd which was made to order for it.
This is vintage Hemen work when he was at
his best. Has a quarter-swan tabli at 12.75 inches
and antler fittings and original bridge with new
jawari. The jawari is very open and a light
touch so is best for those looking for a Ravi
Shankar or Anoushka Shankar type action and tone. Light and easy to handle yet very solid.
Comes with fiberglass cases for sitar and top gourd.
I will also include a second fitted bridge as either
a replica of the original or fitted jawari to your
specifications as well as our standard accessoris.
