ANTIQUE-50+YEAR-OLD SITAR made by the Hemen Co in Calcutta, India #1-SITAR
DESIGN/MANUFACTURER in the world. This Sitar was custom designed and constructed from specially handpicked woods to specifications by the #1 Sitarist of Nepal, Uma, she was a student of the renowned Ravi Shankhar the #1 Sitarist and Sitar instructor in the world. She had it ordered 10+ years prior and it took the maker over 2 years to locate the “right " woods and materials for this very special Sitar. The manufacturer has since passed away taking his secrets with him. I was a personal friend of Uma and when I left Nepal she gifted it to me after she had purchased another Sitar. If the sound from this instrument could be described it would be that of an angelic female voice on a warm summer’s eve, this instrument has a sound like no other Sitar ever made.
This Sitar comes with its own custom case and it has traveled around the world and to many countries without any damage. And it will be shipped in this same box, by the shipping company we use or as the buyer may prefer, with insurance and shipping at the cost of the buyer if you use your own shipper.
This sitar has been conservatively valued at between $8,500.00 and $10,000.00 US-Dollars as it is a “ONE-OF-A-KIND” with a very unique history. People who know Sitars know of this Manufacturer, Teacher and Student “Uma”. The history is long and valued.
The Sitar is 46 inches ( 118 cm ) tall , 13 inches ( 34 cm ) deep at the gourd, 13.5 inches ( 35 cm ) inches wide at the gourd face and 9.5 ( 24 cm ) inches tall at the gourd face. It is a masterpiece of wood craftsmanship, without ever hearing the beauty of its’ heavenly music, and when you pluck the 6 base strings, the other 18 strings automatically resonate making this instrument sound like an orchestra. It needs to go to a good home as I am getting up in age and that is why the reduced price at this time.
