PROFESSIONAL SITAR IN KOLKA DESIGN BY MONOJ KUMAR SARDAR
This excellent top model of the maker Monoj Kumar Sardar includes all the experiences of the maker, all his accuracy and all his craftsmanship. The manufacturing quality, the various components involved as well as the sound concept which has been developed with this Sitar, make it a unique instrument which fulfills the highest professional requirements and which exceed those of the Full Deco models.
It is part of the sound concept to produce a closed Jowari. The bridge has been ground with utmost care in order to produce the characteristic sound pattern. The result is a clear, differentiated sound with a somewhat restrained yet distinct and clear richness in overtones. In the past, the bridge of a Sitar was ground in a way that it produced an open Jowari. The resulting overtones which sound exuberant for today's taste and the buzzing of the strings have been abandoned for quite some time now, at least for professional Sitars. Today's sitarists prefer a closed Jowari. Since the year 2000, plastic bridges are being used instead of the previously common horn or bone bridges. The advantage is that these bridges maintain the Jowari much longer and do not have to be reground because they are much harder than their predecessors. If the bridge is not reground, the closed Jowari changes over the years and, due to the abrasion of the strings on the bridge, the sound pattern comes closer to an open Jowari again. This only happens, however, when you play your Sitar intensively and regularly over many years.
This Sitar is a lower-priced alternative to our Hiren Roy model. The richness of the decor with the inlaid work, the carvings and the dark wood makes this Sitar in the typical Kolka design a noble looking instrument which is definitely not too ornate.
As a traditional instrument manufacturer in the centre of Kolkata, Monoj Kumar Sardar supplies the whole range of Indian instruments and instruments from the folklore range as well as some western instruments. Monoj Kumar Sardar supplies a reliably good quality, both in processing and in sound characteristics, and can in every respect be called a manufacturer of excellent instruments with a good price-performance ratio.
