Hemen mahogany Sitar

Full decoration, dual-color penwork concert sitar from Hemen Sen. Ravi Shankar ~ Kharaj Pancham design, made from tun/Indian mahogany.

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 and slight checking in the polish but stabilized.

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. Very good sustain....Comes with a double tumba rexine/leatherette case. Completely setup and ready to go....

$2250 + shipping  includes rexine case and our standard accessories pack...
