Hemen Sitar

Full decoration, colored penwork concert sitar from Hemen Sen.

A big story here, too long to tell. Was originally going to pick up 3 instruments there but settled on just this one for the time being. It's an interesting piece made of mahogany with a slightly wider gourd than the tabli which is a little over 13 inches, well suited for a smaller person, has a sweet parlour tone and volume with open jawari. Also the carvings on the gulu and tumba are very nice in the angur patta (grape leaf) design. Modern style mogra ~ grommets and unique inlay on the sympathetic pegs which are a thinner profile, easy to tune. A nice low action without interference. Natural horn bridge.....Beautiful quartersawn wood used for the neck along with an old aged piece of tun wood for the tabli. The top tumba is natural (after I insisted) and looks like it's made the same place as the Hiren Roy top gourds. Comes with one extra sympathetic peg with same design just in case....2 thumbs up for this sitar!....Air shipped and carefully handled......

Available again, used but very good condition

$1950  $1500 with fiberglass case included!

Pre-owned with fresh jawari
