pancham (Ravi Shankar style) setting.
7 main strings ~ 13 sympathetics
All geared tuners. Full decoration
This is now an
archive page: Unfortunately I've had to discontinue
carrying instruments from Naeem Sitarmaker. Left
here for your viewing, if you see a design you like
it's easily made by one of our newer makers, just
let me know!
This beautiful sitar features quartersawn
tabli wood and extensive inlay with natural bridges and
double cut slots. Geared tuners for
the main strings and sympathetics.
Fret tying done with nylon per our request so that
the decorations are visible on the back of the neck.
Hand carved tuning beads and langot post. With a
14 inch full sized tabli this is a new adventure for
those wanting the function of geared tuners in a
the headstock is designed for ease of tuning. Comes with a fiberglass
flight cases for sitar and top gourd. Original Miraj construction, not an
imported body from Kolkata as the majority of
instruments are now in Miraj. Has an 3/4 open jawari,
nice resonant tone with full kharaj tone as well and
excellent fitting all around. All natrual
bridges and hardware.
Do expect more sensitivity on the sympathetic
strings as the angles can be dramatic and balance a
little different due to the different weight but
easy to play. Fully carved
and extensive inlays!
Naeem comes from the
oldest family of instrument makers in Miraj and
makes a wide variety of instruments, we work with
him closely on custom pieces and this is the first,
we will get 1 to 2 per year. This sitar has
been air shipped (as are all of our instruments) to
preserve its quality. Please consider this if
comparing to other instruments.
