RA Sitarmaker Gandhar Pancham Necklace design Concert Sitar
Made from aged mahogany with a nice piece
cut for the tabli and natural finished gourd from Maharashtra.
Features natural material for all fittings and
bridges. Unique lattice celluloid trimming combined
with traditional mother of pearl, this sitar
features the 'necklace' design as originally
designed by Rikhi Ram.
Spiral main pegs and plain sympathetics....A very nice
jawari, more on the closed side with great response
to a hard mizrab strike. A nearly flawless finish! Very
playable flat fret setting....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!
In Stock - last one.
This last necklace has a little crazing in the
finish (faint cracking) but is lacquer and best left
alone. It has a light-medium touch with low action,
nice tone and priced to sell!! RA instruments are
now not made locally for the most part, this is the
last original one we have.
shipping SOLD OUT SORRY.
