Sitar, Professional, Single Toomba, GR
This G. Rosul brand, professional quality, single toomba sitar comes strung in the 6-string style; with 4 main, 2 chikari and 11 sympathetic strings, approximately 48-49 inches in length. Includes extra string set, mizrabs, information and tuning guide (Book or CD-Rom as stock allows), and nylon case. While most double toomba sitars are strung in the 7-string style and single toomba sitars in the 6-string style, you can change the style of your sitar by re-stringing it with the appropriate number and gage of strings. Single toomba sitars, which have fewer inlays and carvings, offer an elegant alternative to the double toomba sitars. Without the small neck resonator these sitar are less top heavy as compared to the traditional double toomba sitar. The G Rosul company was founded 25 years ago. The founder of the G Rosul ghar (house), Mr. Gulam Rosul, was taught the art of making sitars from his father at a very young age and became a master in the craft. His instruments have proven to be very popular with several musicians in India. Today his children carry on the family tradition. Their sitars are renowned for their tonal clarity and easy playability. Decorations and colors will vary. These are all individually made and will be unique.
