looking for a high quality Saraswati Veena

Postby billvb » Mon Sep 19, 2011 11:50 pm

Greetings. I live in Seattle and would like to purchase a high quality Saraswati Veena. Does anyone here have a recommendation for a reputable source for such an instrument? I can't find anything locally and would be interested in buying one and having it shipped if someone had a strong recommendation for a local contact in India.

On the other hand; does anyone have a really nice one that they'd like to sell?

Thanks,

Bill

If you've got serious interest and some patience then I can probably find some good ones for you. Have been wanting to do this for awhile actually. There are a number of generic instruments around in the market but I've always suspected (and heard a few times) they would be like the generic sitars and have problems. There is a good maker in Mysore and also one further south but I'd have to go there the first time which wouldn't be until early next year probably.
Email me if interested info@sitar-tabla.com.
