Radhey Shyam Sharma
We're often asked given the lack of
instruments being made from Hiren Roy, "who else is
like them?" Radhey Shyam Sharma instruments have a
similar dark and smooth tone and exceptional fit and
finish. The instrument work is done in-house,
no imported bodies which makes him stand out from
his competitors definitely. His craftsman who works
on the structure and carving is probably the best in
India. We've known Radhey for many years now and are
happy to represent his work here in the West.
This is the latest surbahar from Radhey, we
ordered it and then checked it when finished in
India along with the sitars that have just arrived.
Has a half open jawari, subtle but present
sympathetic response, not overpowering. A nice bell
like tone similar to the last one we had which was
Indrajit Banerjee here:
This surbahar features a 17 1/2 inch tabli,
suitable tuning from G to A.
7 main strings, kharaj pancham style with 11
sympathetic strings. Natural traditional materials
for bridges and langot. Garland rose full decoration
combined with faux mother of pearl inlay.
Traditional grommets and bone tipped pegs. The
scrolled headstock is actually hollow, very unique.
This instrument has been air shipped to US from
India as all our instruments, any others you'll find
outside of India are generally container shipped due
to size and cost and poorly handled with no setup...Expect shipping to be
around $150 +/- to most US locations via Fed Ex but
actual shipping charge will be determined upon sale.
