Radhey Shyam Sharma studio travel sitar.
6 main strings ~ 12 sympathetics
~ Pancham/Pancham style.
Mahogany wood and half cut natural gourd ~
kachua style. Built to be a more portable version of
a full size concert sitar it has a great sound and
is suitable for those wanting a smaller sitar
without sacrificing volume or tone. It has a 13 inch
wide tabli, similar to many full sized sitars. Set
up with a bass pancham string only, a common tuning
in Varanasi with nice quality geared tuning pegs for
the main strings and hardwood sympathetics. Comes
with a regular size sitar gig bag. Natural materials
for the bridge with a 3/4 open jawari and responsive
sympathetics. We will include a McIntyre transducer
at no extra cost with this instrument. This sitar was personally selected by us in Varanasi, fitted to
our specs and air shipped to our shop. A remarkable
instrument from a great maker!
