Sanjay Rikhiram

Pre-owned Kharaj Pancham full decoration

Anoushka Shankar style in tun wood

This instrument originally bought by me in Delhi special for a customer in 2014 and carried back to the US.

This is one of a pair of structures made for a sitar order by Anoushka Shankar at the time. The structure is tun wood/mahogany made by Anil Halder in Kolkata who makes the highest level instruments for both of the Rikhiram named stores, this one from Sanjay Sharma. One was fitted for her and the other is this one which I had fitted in a more standard setting as her action is extremely low. I played both and had the same sound but the original owner wanted a 10.5mm action height which is 'normal' for most players

This sitar has an open jawari, progressive curved frets and traditional grommet sympathetics. In very good condition, the polish is very dark with red highlights (most pictures had to be lightened due to our cloudy weather/light) 7 main strings and 13 sympathetics in kharaj pancham. Top tumba is natrual gourd.

Very good sound and balanced easy smpathetic response and not too thin in the tabli. Bridges are nylon and this instrument includes a fitted replica resin main and sympathetic bridge made here. There is a built-in AKG C411PP pickup installed internally with a standard XLR jack near the langot. All fitting, polish, etc. updated here as it was sent to me for consignment. Comes with fiberglass hard case and outer cover and accessories pack.
