NASKAR & CO.
Concert Sitar in Ravi Shankar style ~ Kharaj
main strings, 13 sympathetics)
Naskar & Co. is a well known maker in
Kolkata. I recently went to them and picked this
sitar which really stood out. Now made by the
original Naskars son Arabinda, they have nice
seasoned wood and well trained craftsmen.
This particular instrument is a large
sitar, 14 inches across on the tabli. It is more on
the open side of jawari, with great sympathetic
response and nice volume which shows the age of the
wood. Traditional phulia, natural materials used on
the bridges with old Burma teak legs on the main
bridge. The striker rails are synthetic which is
unique but look great. Brass langot and wooden top
matched gourd. They used very nice wood on this one
with equally nice polish and finish. It was
personally checked and hand carried to the US by me
and fine tuned here. Comes with fiberglass case for
the sitar and for the upper gourd and our standard
set of accessories.
Naskar sitars have to be checked in India,
next ones are due in Summer of 2017.
Out of stock, sorry
