Hiren Roy sitars

The first thing you'll notice about Hiren Roy sitars are that they have a new label! The shop on Rashbehari Avenue has been closed and Barun Ray (yes he spells it that way) is working from his shop at home now. We are fortunate to have a good history with him and regularly keep instruments on order. He's not making as many as he used to, these sitars are best for those wanting the "Hiren Roy school of touch". They have a remarkable response, flatter frets, and what is best described as a "butter smooth" tone. In my opinion the action is without equal, especially for those wanting a Nikhil Banerjee type of sound. Barun uses synthetic bridges and fittings made of a special type of Polyester Resin. Many of our Hiren Roy instruments are brought back personally during my yearly trips to Calcutta. All Hiren Roy sitars come with fiberglass cases for both the sitar and top gourd, included in the price.

Please check out the gallery page for pictures of Barun and his workshop. 

Please note the output from Barun is much less these days, we get only a few instruments per year and many are pre-sold.
