Hiren Roy Sitar
decoration ~ pre-owned
One of the last
sitars made from stored wood in the Hiren Roy /
Barun shop. At the time Barun
used his most aged wood stored by his father
and built the professional level instruments with a thickness that will
give it a long life and deep tone with proper
break-in and playing.
13.5 + inch tabli, angoor patta design in the
carvings. Original cream resin bridge with new
jawari. This instrument comes with one of our
replica bridges included as an extra which allows
you to have a copy of your original at all times.
The tone is classic half open with a great sustain.
Polish is stable with minimum checking and shrinkage
under the celluloid. Minor wear but nothing out of
the ordinary, it has been lightly polished here
along with peg fitting and jawari.
This sitar was
ordered and picked up by a musician in India and
brought over via air. It's approximately 3 to 4
years old and the structure was made by Baruns now
retired craftsman. It has been fitted back to
original specifications here, comes with fiberglass
cases for the sitar and top gourd and the standard
accessories package I offer with all instruments.
This is a consignment sitar here at the shop which I
was very happy to accept.
