FS: MKS Esraj

Post by naad_brahma » Thu Apr 17, 2014 6:38 pm

I bought a Manoj Kumar Sardar esraj just for the fun of it and spent some time tweaking it to perfection. I'd like to put it up for sale as I'm finding I'm much more at home on the sarangi and I'm about to move and need to free up some space. I added a cocobolo bridge to it as the original bridge was plastic and quite heavy. I tightened the skin, re-strung it, and added wound strings for the jod, pancham, and kharaj. The tone is very warm and I'm very pleased with the kharaj sound. The esraj includes a fiberglass case and bow. I'm asking $425 for it. Links to the images and a video are below.
