Implements of Sound : The Gandhar Pancham Sitar

LESS is MORE is a relatively new phenomenon in the world of design. Ustad Vilayat Khan, (a pioneer in music) turns out, has also become the pioneer in design with his modest yet sophisticated Sitar ! When asked why he plays such a "plain" instrument, he allegedly offered a tongue-in-cheek reply about wanting to play handsomely rather than own something that looks beautiful and play with moderate grace.

Immortalized as the Vilayat Khan Style Sitar, this model has 6 main strings and is also called the Gandhar Pancham model. Made from Red Cedar wood, with faceted celluloid carvings and a fantastic acoustic gourd, say hello to the ULTIMATE GURU CONCERT GRADE GANDHAR PANCHAM SITAR !
