It arrived - and is stunning! Thank you Harry - for all the hard work that went into such a magnificent instrument. I'm not convinced you make any profit on these, this is clearly worth the price and then some.
...I just thought the sitar would be pretty darn good but this one is really really up there, over the rainbow glistening rain drops on lotus blossoms;-). I feel so lucky to have this instrument. It is one of the jewels of my instrument collection.
I played my Hiren Roy last night at a gig after it’s been in storage for a year since I got my Carbon Sitar. You know, I heavily prefer my Carbon Sitar over the Hiren Roy in regards to tone, how it works with the live setup/pedals I use, its flexibility and portability; IMO Carbon WINS!!
