decoration Standard Concert Sitar
decoration single tumba
Along with our
full decoration Srishti
Standard this is also called the 'Standard' because it sets an
acceptable standard for what an affordable concert
sitar should be. Made from aged mahogany (tun) wood.
One piece Pandharpur gourd, all made in Miraj from
start to finish, not a relabeled Kolkata import. We
came up with this model to meet the need by some for
a student level instrument without top gourd.. While 'student level' or
instruments of this type of decoration often disappoint, this one will not as it has been
carefully fitted and has a decent weight as well.
Great action and a half open jawari. You will not
find a better instrument anywhere for this price!!
These feature very nice tight single color
penwork along with a fine shellac hand finish.
Spiral main pegs and decorated sympathetics. Bridge
are bone. Langot is polished hardwood/bone
composite. Each one is unique so expect slight
variation.....Includes a fiberglass flat top hard
case. These are individually made so we keep one at
a time in stock when possible.
This sitar has been
air shipped (as are all of our instruments) to
preserve its quality. Your purchase includes 3
mizrabs, string hook, chalk, a set of strings, and 1
free DVD from our
