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!
Only 2 per year, this is a very nice
decorated Miraj style surbahar with a great sound!
7 main strings and 14 sympathetics featuring a 3/4 open jawari. All natural materials
for nuts and ebony bridges. Nuts (Meru) are custom hand
carved. Customized pegs all around with lowest
sympathetic peg offset. Sympathetics have their own
langot mounted inside the tabli sound hole. Large
natural upper gourd.
Aged mahogany was used, it has a 16+ inch
tabli. The footrest is integrated to fit well in the
case. Decorations are a combination of Miraj style
inlays as well as penwork. The one in the pictures
is the first, each will vary somewhat depending on
type of celluloid (opaque or semi) that's available
and they like to make each just a little different
Fiberglass cases for surbahar and top gourd
are also Miraj made and very nice with a fitted
This surbahar has been
air shipped to us (as are all of our instruments) to
preserve its quality. Full final fitting done here
to your specifications. Extra fitted resin bridge is
complimentary on this instrument and included.
Designs will vary a bit, each is unique!
