This Natraj brand, single toomba sitar is from Bhargava & Co. It comes strung in the 6-string style with 4 main, 2 chikari and 11 sympathetic strings. Approximate overall length is: 48-49 inches.
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 gauge of strings.
Single toomba sitars, with fewer inlays and fewer carvings, offer an elegant alternative to the double toomba sitars. Without the small neck resonator, these sitars are less top heavy as compared to the traditional double toomba sitar.
This complete set includes an extra string set, mizrabs, information and tuning guide (Book or CD-ROM as stock allows) and a nylon case.
Bhargava & Co. was established in 1948 as a wholesaler of musical instruments. Today they are a leading manufacturer and exporter of musical instruments.
Decorations and colors will vary. These are all individually handmade and therefore each one will be unique.

SPECIAL NOTE - No Warranty on Strings: Manufacturers recommend that you change the strings on your instrument as soon as you receive it. During the long journey to your home the elements affect the strings and may shorten their life expectancy and reduce their sound quality. On occasion, a string may fail during this trip; therefore, it is recommended that you purchase a replacement set of strings and consider changing them as soon as possible. Learning to change strings should be the first lesson learned when embarking on the journey of playing a new instrument.
