RA Sitarmaker half decoration Ravi Shankar style Sitar
Made from aged mahogany with a nice piece
cut for the tabli and natural finished gourd from Maharashtra.
Features synthetic/bone composite fittings and
bridges. Has a carved upper tumba yoke, traditional
eyelets and brass langot. Stamped with the RA logo
and number. Lotus main pegs and inlaid brass design
dark sympathetics....This sitar has been
air shipped (as are all of our instruments) to
preserve its quality. The sitar you see is the
exact model in stock, we use natural light
photography but due to low light conditions these
photos have had moderate light/contrast adjustments
and do not do the instrument justice but it will
have to do for the moment!
This sitar has a little crazing in the
finish (faint cracking) and minor "shop rash" on the
bottom tumba but is spray lacquer as opposed to
traditional French polish and best left
alone. It has a medium touch with lowered action,
3/4 open jawari and very responsive sympathetic
strings. A nice tone and priced to sell, full jawari
and setup done by us also, it's perfect for a
serious beginner or as an addition to your
instrument collection. One only in this style of
setup. Do check out our recent very nice instruments
by RA (Ayub) on the sitar main page, we're no longer
getting this type from them.
