STANDARD SITAR MODEL CALCUTTA – STARTER MODEL
The Calcutta model is designed for beginners whose budget is limited or for those who want a Sitar only for experimental purposes or for limited use. However, the instrument offers a good price-performance ratio.
In the past, the bridge of a Sitar was ground in a way that it produced an open Jowari. The standard model Calcutta represents this older sound concept as initiated by Ravi Shankar. Even though these exuberant overtones are outdated, it is often precisely this sound pattern that is associated with the typical sound of a Sitar in the west.
The Calcutta model is not a branded Sitar but is manufactured by a small, unknown workshop. Still, the instrument is equipped with all the typical features of a Sitar, can be absolutely recommended and has an appropriate price-performance ratio. If on the other hand you consider getting involved more deeply and for a longer period of time, you should think about investing a little bit more and buying a higher quality branded instrument for beginners.
