Srishti "Kashi" Sitar ~ this is a fantastic instrument which didn't attract much interest, modeled after the Radhey Shyam Sharma sitars only with a top gourd. A redesign is in the works but probably looking at Winter of 2011 or 2012.

Srishti Garland Sitar we've discontinued this model.
Sanjay Rikhi Ram Gandhar Pancham necklace sitar We get the occasional sitar used from Rikhi Ram but don't import any longer due to extremely high prices in India. We can have this made by Srishti Musical if needed though.
RA Sitarmaker Gandhar Pancham necklace design This was a cheaper knock off of the Rikhi Ram design way back when.

Teak full decoration sitar with penwork another one of a kind...
Special Gandhar Pancham sitar by RA Sitarmaker ~ A unique and beautiful sitar unavailable from RA any longer, we can get this custom designed by Srishti if needed though.Bashir past models. We have discontinued carrying his instrument as most Miraj made sitars are now fitted there but the bodies are made in Calcutta and they're not using traditional finishes. We are able to do similar models through another Miraj maker using traditional bodies and finish though if you find a design you like here.
