Sound clips of some of our instruments.
Clips are video via Youtube taken with a small HD camera. No enhancements added, it's straight video/audio of the acoustic sound to give you an idea of the tone and quality. We used video to show the actual instrument as its being played. Additional audio clips of most instruments available for serious inquiries. We're about halfway to the goal of providing clips for each sitar and surbahar we carry.
Please allow the page(s) time to load and scroll down to view all clips from our selection.
Hiren Roy ~ Barun Ray sound samples
Barun is perhaps the premium sitar maker in India, his instruments are highly regarded by many professional musicians for their sound and action. Usually out of stock due to limited volume but nevertheless here are a few sound/video clips for you to gauge his tone by.
Hiren Roy Full decoration concert sitar ~ This is the top model he makes from aged mahogany, has a very warm sound with half open jawari.
Hiren Roy studio sitar ~ made just like a regular sitar only with modified headstock and then the gourd is cut down when finished and a wood back is added with gourd sides. As nice a sound as the regular version!
