BLEMISHED:The STRUS, Sardar ultra professional sitar highly decorated with hand carvings and feature an inlay with red etching. The tuning pegs for the Main strings are carved in a lotus design; the tuning pegs for the sympathetic strings are decorated with inlay. Includes 7 main strings, 13 sympathetic strings and 20 frets.  The sitar is approximately 49-inches long and has a neck width of approximately 4-inches.

A short wire, tied to one of the low frets, is shaped so that the two ends are bent into hooks. These hooks are used to hold the low bass stings down, and out of the way, during fast passages. As an example: when the number 4 string is tuned to low Sa, 2 octaves below middle C, the string is quite loose and can rattle during fast passages. Tucking the string under the hook, stops it from rattling when the other strings are being played. When used, the hook creates two notes on the string; one note above and one below the hook. Even though you are not playing the string under the hook, it could resonate sympathetically while you play, so make sure the two notes have a pleasant intonation.

Accessories Included: Includes extra string set, mizrabs, information and tuning guide and hard case.

Please Note: Decorations and colors will vary. These are all individually made and will be unique.
