 Welcome to the SITAR page, we offer sitars by Srishti Musical, Hiren Roy, Naeem Sitarmaker, SenGupta, Mohan Lal Sharma, Radhey Shyam Sharma, Hemen, and others. Every instrument is carefully monitored through each stage of production and air shipped only. While we have access to nearly any maker in India, we've chosen these few makers based on predictable superior quality and tone. We have a long history with each maker and regularly visit India every year to monitor progress on the instruments. We go to an extreme degree  that is unmatched by anyone else to guarantee a very high quality instrument for you!! If in doubt, give us a call and we'll play them for you, there's only one other dealer in the west that can do this so don't put your trust in cheap importers or dress shops! Sitars are the main reason we're here....Custom modifications are available from each maker provided you're willing to wait for it. Otherwise, in stock instruments will generally feature half closed jawari in the case of Kharaj Pancham sitars or closed jawari for Vilayat Khan style sitars. For detailed information about makers, etc. please visit the Sitar information page.
