Hemen 6-peg sarod for sale -Australia

Post by Marc » Wed Jul 25, 2012 2:23 am

For sale is a 20-25 year old Hemen six-peg sarod.
It is a Shajahanphur style 6-peg sarod, 2-piece tun wood, though with a sound box somewhat smaller than the standard Maihar size. Length of instrument 42 inches, width at widest point of sound box approx 11 1/4 inches.

Features the standard Shjahanphur sarod setup, with 15 taraf strings, 5 main playing strings (Ma, Sa, Pa, low Sa, low Pa) with high sa string and 2 chikkaris. All original bone fittings.

It bears the usual marks of wear-and tear for a sarod of this age, but I have not bothered to have it re-polished because it still looks ok and shows the natural wood grain.

It performs well, with a lovely mellow sound from its matured tun wood and partly translucent skin. Features gulab pegs and the classic Hemen four- sided slender head stock and snugly fitting taraf pegs that mark Hemen Sen’s fine craftsmanship.

Selling for $AU 1500, including a new top-grade Nirmal fiberglass travel case.

Can ship o/s or interstate within Australia at buyer's expense.

Can provide photos via email and discuss further if interested. Askem_56@yahoo.com.au
