RA sitarmaker Kharaj Pancham Concert Sitar
Made from aged mahogany and gourds from
Maharashtra. Features natural material for all
fittings and bridges. Red penwork varying from solid
red to saffron. Exceptional sound. Ayub now has more
low profiled necks and flatter fret setting making
this a very enjoyable instrument. Another
nice surprise is the soundhole on the top tumba is
actually tuned to C#. This sitar has been
air shipped (as are all of our instruments) to
preserve its quality. Current model pictures
this one has been re-voiced by Scott Hackleman with
a beautiful Nikhil Banerjee half-bandh jawari!
