WHAT ABOUT THIS SITAR ?

Post by FBASSMAN » Thu May 12, 2016 10:20 am

Hi everybody here !

I'm Franck, from France.

I can trade a Ukranian Bandura with this Sitar.

I need to know if this one is a good Sitar, his value etc...

Many thanks.

You may want to post in the sitar forum for more thoughts on this instrument.

That's a Rikhiram sitar by Sanjay Sharma, there are 2 brothers each running their own shop. Bhagat Singh Market is Sanjay.
Their instruments come from Kolkata and there are several versions of this style and hard to tell sometimes. This looks like a student or artist model based on the body style.

Value is hard to say as the quality varies on them. It's a well known brand though so generally a safe bet if fitted properly.

What are those colored dots on the neck for?

I assume the coloured dots are like the ones they put on young children's violins to help them find the notes.

That's doesn't make sense because the dots are also next to the tuners on the headstock and on the taraf strings. Also they are not on 'strategic' places. Must be for 'decoration' then.

Can't be decoration can it, as they're far too random. A kiddie playing on it wouldn't be able to see them anyway. REMOVE ALL AT ONCE mon ami !!!

Also what did it cost - as in exchanging, straight exchange I presume,??
