Mohammed Waseem Concert Sitar
Kohinoor style decoration tun wood
Shankar style setup ~ all inlaid
A Miraj version of the popular Kohinoor
design which has been done by a few makers, Waseem
probably the most well known designer of these
there. Extensive inlay and smooth carvings, this was
ordered in a lighter color to accent the beautiful
tun wood that was selected.
7 main strings and 13 sympathetics
featuring a 3/4 open jawari in the style of Pandit
Ravi Shankar. All natural materials for
nuts/bridges. Nuts (Meru) are hand carved. The langot is
maple and done in a unique style to string the main
strings without having to make a loop similar to the
large tanpuras. Main pegs are
a nice low profile spiral carving. Natural shellac finish in
dark brown with slight yellow undertones.
Jawari is about 3/4 open, nice sympathetic
response, custom jawari available of course as per
Waseem for a very long time and happy to now be
offering his instruments. We visit yearly and are in
constant touch, the instruments are a nice
combination of both of our skills together!
instruments are each unique so there are no carbon
copies although a nearly exact model can be ordered
