Mohan Lal Sitar
decoration Benares style sitar by Mohan Lal Sharma
Not too many people know about Mohan Lal
but his sitars are favored by many of the musicians
in Varanasi whose sitars often are made without the
top tumba ~ gourds. Rajesh Sharma continues in the
tradition of his Dad and builds fantastic sitars,
any of them at any level are usually fantastic.
This sitar is darker colored, has a camel
bone bridge and traditional round eyelets for the
sympathetic strings. Spiral main pegs and plain
sympathetic pegs, it is strung in the Kharaj Pancham
~ Ravi Shankar style. Has a nice open tone and great
action with a 13 1/2 inch tabli. Perfect for a
serious player on a budget or any other player for
that matter. Hand picked by us. Comes with a
fiberglass case included. We are the authorized
dealer in the West for Rajesh Sharma and Mohan Lal
