Bashir Kashmiri dark Kharaj Pancham sitar.
7 main strings ~ 13 sympathetics
~ exquisite penwork in the Ravi Shankar style.
A natural fully carved sitar with no
plastic/celluloid or penwork, just fully carved wood
in mahogany with ebony finished highlights. Features natural material for all
fittings. Bridges are made of ebony in a decorated
style. Unique carvings, superb finish with a dark
mottled natural gourd from Maharashtra. Spun wood
top tumba and beautiful sanded edge main pegs. About 3/4 open with a medium touch,
this particular sitar is very responsive and
resonant. We are
really impressed with the tone and beauty of Bashir's instruments and this sitar has
been air shipped (as are all of our instruments) to
preserve its quality. Please consider this if
