Srishti Jodhpur not stocked but can be custom ordered.
Srishti Manipur Tun (mahogany) Sitar not stocked but can be custom ordered.
The Basic was a popular model but sadly we can't keep the price reasonable due to increased costs. May still be ordered but at the Srishti Standard price now.
Srishti Garland Sitar Older style.
RA Sitarmaker 1/2 decoration sitar This was a cheap Kolkata body sitar we received that ended up being decent after a complete refitting job.
Srishti Padma (Lotus) Sitar may be custom orders, about 3 to 4 months delivery time.
Srishti "Kashi" Sitar ~ this is a fantastic instrument which didn't attract much interest, modeled after the Radhey Shyam Sharma sitars only with a top gourd. A redesign is in the works but probably looking at Winter of 2011 or 2012.
Srishti Fancy Gandhar Pancham Custom Sitar another gem ~ available on custom order now only.
Srishti "Peacock" Sitar available on custom order now only.
Srishti Garland Sitar we've discontinued this model.
Sanjay Rikhi Ram Gandhar Pancham necklace sitar We get the occasional sitar used from Rikhi Ram but don't import any longer due to extremely high prices in India. We can have this made by Srishti Musical if needed though.
RA Sitarmaker Gandhar Pancham necklace design This was a cheaper knock off of the Rikhi Ram design way back when.
Mohan Lal Benares style sitar ~ Handpicked in Varanasi by us, a very playable sitar set up in Kharaj Pancham style with a great action. Mohan Lal passed away recently but his son is making sitars also and is very good but a lot more expensive....
Special Gandhar Pancham sitar by RA Sitarmaker ~ A unique and beautiful sitar unavailable from RA any longer, we can get this custom designed by Srishti if needed though.Bashir past models. We have discontinued carrying his instrument as most Miraj made sitars are now fitted there but the bodies are made in Calcutta and they're not using traditional finishes. We are able to do similar models through another Miraj maker using traditional bodies and finish though if you find a design you like here.
