Does anyone still make surbahars with the classic huge tumbas? Like the massive instrument Irshad Khan uses? All the information I see about sitars online show the smaller modern style. But that’s just what I see on the English internet.
The surbahar on the youtube clip looks big because the neck isn't so long. I have a recently made more 'full-size' one I play when I'm in Varanasi, north India & IT has a more usual large toomba.
