Hemen mahogany Sitar
decoration, dual-color penwork concert sitar from Hemen
Sen. Ravi Shankar ~ Kharaj Pancham design, made from
This sitar is a consignment which we were
most happy to take. It is approximately 25 years old.
Was owned by a local luthier who took the finish to
the next level on the sitar. Top gourd also polished
but left as original from the maker color-wise.
This is vintage Hemen work when he was at
his best and was using local craftsmen who are now
long gone as you can tell by the carvings. Has
a 14 1/2 inch tabli It has all antler bridges and
langot with a 1/2 open jawari on both bridges, more
of a Nikhil Banerjee type sound which is uncommon
with this maker. It's a solid instrument with good
weight, not played a whole lot in its life as you
can see. Comes with a
double tumba rexine/leatherette case. Completely
setup and ready to go....
rexine case and our standard accessories pack...
