RA sitarmaker Studio Sitar
Made from a very nice piece of aged
mahogany. Features natural material for all fittings
and bridges. Full colored penwork, Kharaj Pancham
layout and full decoration. Studio sitars
have gained in popularity over recent years due to
use by Ravi Shankar and Niladri Kumar. There are
many variations of them from cheap plywood to fully
carved mahogany. The volume is about half of a
normal sitar with built in transducer and jack.. This sitar has a full mahogany body
and is top of the line, as good as the famous name
brands at 50% less. The main strings have mechanical tuners for
convenience and the top chikari strings are using
the traditional friction pegs. Sympathetic pegs have
the best inlaid pegs as used on the full Kharaj
This sitar has been
air shipped (as are all of our instruments) to
preserve its quality.
Not quite sure when more will arrive (we're
working on it)but be sure to check out our

padded soft bag OUT OF STOCK!
