Naeem Sitarmaker Concert Sitar with custom headstock
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!
A few concepts here taken from the Srishti
Sindh design and the Naeem Floral inlaid sitar.
7 main strings and 13 sympathetics featuring a 3/4 open jawari in the
style of Pandit Ravi Shankar. All natural materials
for nuts/bridges. Nuts (Meru) are custom hand
carved. Main and sympathetic pegs made of Indian
Aged mahogany was used, it has a 14+ inch tabli and the construction is all Miraj made of
course, 2 different types of celluloid utilizing a
new type now available.
Fiberglass cases for sitar and top gourd
are also Miraj made and very nice with a fitted
plush lining. This case made especially for this
instrument as it won't fit in standard cases.
This sitar has been
air shipped (as are all of our instruments) to
preserve its quality. Styles of each will vary
slightly, current stock has ebony main pegs and
ebony inlaid sympathetics due to the rosewood
protection in place.
