This G. Rosul brand, professional quality, single fiber toomba differs from other single toomba sitars in three important ways.
First, this sitar features a fiber toomba instead of the traditional gourd.
Secondly, while most single toomba sitars are strung with 6 main strings this sitar comes strung in the 7-string style; with 5 main, 2 chikari and 11 sympathetic strings.
Lastly, this sitar is fully decorated more in keeping with the traditional double toomba sitars than the more simply decorated single toomba sitars. Without the small neck resonator these sitar are less top heavy as compared to the traditional double toomba sitar. This is a cross over style with all the benefits.
Decorations and colors will vary. These are all individually made and will be unique.
Approximately 48-49 inches in length.
Includes extra string set, mizrabs, information and tuning guide Book or CD-Rom as stock allows, and padded nylon case.
The G Rosul company was founded 25 years ago. The founder of the G Rosul ghar house, Mr. Gulam Rosul, was taught the art of making sitars from his father at a very young age and became a master in the craft. His instruments have proven to be very popular with several musicians in India. Today his children carry on the family tradition. Their sitars are renowned for their tonal clarity and easy playability.
NOTE: There is no warranty on the strings shipped on your new instrument. Your instrument has completed a long journey before it ever begins the final leg to you. The strings on your new instrument are tuned, inspected and finally de-tuned for shipment. Environmental and temperature changes may also affect the strings and could shorten their lifespan. It is recommended that you acquire a replacement set and consider changing the strings as soon as, or shortly after, your instrument arrives.
If you are just learning the instrument you may wish to change your strings every couple of months. If you are a professional - then you already KNOW the difference a NEW set of strings can make to the sound and playability of your instrument. Bottom line - your strings should be changed as needed. Enjoy!
