Naeem Sitarmaker Concert Sitar Kashmiri style
Shankar ~ kharaj pancham
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 design idea that took a good year to
develop due to the design of the inlays!
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. Hardwood pegs, custom sympathetic pegs and
langot. Even the beads are hand made in Miraj..
Aged mahogany was used, it has a 14 inch tabli , there is no celluloid or penwork but the
decorations are hand cut designs that are inlaid.
Dual swan carved upper nuts with bone sleeves for
the strings. Ebony bridges.
Fiberglass cases for sitar and top gourd
are also Miraj made and very nice with a fitted
plush lining. Please note each instrument is unique
with slight variations in carving/inlay. This sitar has been
air shipped (as are all of our instruments) to
preserve its quality.
