Sitar by Kanai Lal & Sons of Calcutter for Sale

George Harrison of the Beatles Played a Similar Model

Specially made by the respected Kanai Lal & Sons, a Calcutta based maker. Made with the finest selected Indian mahogany (tun) wood available. The intricate hand carvings are done in the traditional decorative Calcutta style. Every detail has been carefully monitored including the hand-crafted lotus pegs that have been carefully fitted and chalked. Fitted with a beautiful hand engraved tumba (top gourd). A professional 20 string (13 sympathetic plus 7 main) sitar, Pundit Ravi Shankar kharaj pancham style tuning. It's hand polished in a dark walnut finish for exceptionally clear tone. This sitar includes a good quality hard shell Sitar case, an extra set of sitar strings. A great playing and sounding sitar at a very reasonable price.

This is a fully decorated (Ravi Shankar style) sitar with 13 inlaid taraf (sympathetic) pegs, 7 lotus style main pegs, monochrome penwork and wood mount upper tumba. The bridges and fittings are synthetic, as are most sitars nowadays. (The one here for sale on CL has the traditional camel bone nut.) Each taraf string has a unique bridge design. This instrument has a very nice tone and smooth action.
