This G. Rosul brand, professional quality, single fiber toomba differs from other single toomba sitars in three important ways. First, this sitar features a fiber toomba instead of the traditional gourd, Secondly, while most single toomba sitars are strung with 6 main strings this sitar comes strung in the 7-string style; with 5 main, 2 chikari and 11 sympathetic strings. Lastly, this sitar is fully decorated more in keeping with the traditional double toomba sitars than the more simply decorated single toomba sitars. Without the small neck resonator these sitar are less top heavy as compared to the traditional double toomba sitar. This is a cross over style with all the benefits.
