Vintage Radha Krishna Sharma sitar

 ~ Kharaj pancham setting ~

7 main strings ~ 11 sympathetics

A local player in retirement offered this to us and gladly accepted! Made in 1971, this is #247 of Radha Krishna Sharmas production. He was a very good maker, known for great open sound, Ravi Shankar style. He passed away long ago and now the name is still there but they're nothing like when he was alive. Originally from Bihar, he was also the uncle of Mohan Lal Sharma whos work continues via his son Rajesh. These older bodies were made by a craftsman named Lankeshwar who worked for Radha Krishna, Hiren Roy, and Hemen. Even though this was his regular model, the workmanship is exquisite as is the wood.

The tone character is 3/4 open, great sympathetic response. It has all the original antler bridges and hardware, fresh jawari done by us in exactly the same style and the instrument has been regenerated to original condition. Top gourd is smaller but natural, brass langot. Minimal wear and shop rash, larger size and VG condition! Original owners phone number etched on the back of headstock, had 1 owner only. Comes with your choice of a used fiberglass double tumba case or a rexine double tumba fiberglass case. Please email with any questions or for a sound clip, etc.

$1350  Sold, sorry!  with case  + shipping   SOLD, SORRY
