Monoj Kumar Sardar & Bros. Sitar Ultra Professional & Gig Bag BLEMISHED. The Sardar ultra professional sitar is approximately 49" long and has a neck width of approximately 4 inches. The neck and body are highly decorated and feature a red etched inlay. The tuning pegs for the 7 Main and 13 Sympathetic strings are hand carved in a floral design.
FEATURE: A short wire, tied to one of the low frets terminates in two hooks. These hooks are used to hold the low bass stings down, and out of the way, during fast passages. As an example: when the number 4 string is tuned to low Sa, 2 octaves below middle C, the string is quite loose and can rattle during fast passages. Tucking the string under the hook, stops it from rattling when the other strings are being played. When used, the hook creates two notes on the string; one note above and one below the hook. Even though you are not playing the string under the hook, it could resonate sympathetically while you play, so make sure the two notes have a pleasant intonation. Decorations and colors will vary. These are all individually made and will be unique.
ACCESSORIES: Includes extra string set, mizrabs, information and tuning guide and padded gig bag.
