Radhey Shyam Sharma teak concert sitar.

7 main strings ~ 13 sympathetics ~  Ravi Shankar/kharaj pancham style.

Made from aged salvaged teak! Set up in kharaj pancham style without top tumba as is common throughout India and especially Varanasi. This sitar is unique in that it is completely made within their shop. Almost unheard of today, this is a feature of their best sitars with 3 dimensional carvings finely detailed that rival the best Kanai Lal sitars of the past. Natural inlaid materials throughout with a half open jawari done and easy action, lotus garland design on the tabli. Radhey also uses a soundhole in the top of the neck which works rather well. Floral main pegs with hardwood sympathetics with modern style sympathetic grommets. Radhey's teak sitars project well and have a sound and playability that equal the quality of workmanship you see here. This sitar was personally selected by us in Varanasi, fitted to our specs and air shipped to our shop. A remarkable instrument from a great maker!
