P & Brothers full decoration
7 main strings ~ 13 sympathetics
~ natural top gourd and single color unique penwork.
Gulab patta (rose) design, this sitar was
recently commissioned and features a half closed
jawari with synthetic main bridge. We were present
during fitting and jawari as you can see from the
pictures and please note this instrument (as all of
our instruments) has been handled carefully and air
shipped. Nice sound and action, their top of the
line model. You may notice some similarities to
Hiren Roy in the decorations as it appears that the
same penwork craftsman does the P & Brothers penwork
on their #1 sitar. A good traditionally styled
Kolkata sitar properly set up by Suman Karmakar. A
highly under-rated maker maintaining traditional
style of fitting and never mass produced. Recommend
for players who like a decent half closed sound. Add
and extra bridge with sitar purchase for $50, will
be fitted and jawari complete and will keep a
duplicate here for future needs.
