Sound clips of some of our instruments.
Clips are video via Youtube taken with a small HD camera. No enhancements added, it's straight video/audio of the acoustic sound to give you an idea of the tone and quality. We used video to show the actual instrument as its being played. Additional audio clips of most instruments available for serious inquiries. We're about halfway to the goal of providing clips for each sitar and surbahar we carry.
Please allow the page(s) time to load and scroll down to view all clips from our selection.
