Hello, I just got a G.Rosul sitar Does anyone know any history about these sitars? The head plate says "G.Rosul" "Baikhali,Uluberia Howrah". It seems like a decent sitar,needs some jawari work though. Tone not as good as my Mangla rose petal but its ok.Once I get around to the jawari work it might improve. One of the tarb pegs needs to be replaced also. Any info would be welcomed, thanky!

Name indicates a Calcutta maker. But there are quite a few makers in Calcutta...for that matter any major musical city (Delhi, Bombay, Miraj, Pune). Am not familiar with the maker though.

Well, there's another one I've never heard of but I know there are many many makers of instruments most of whom we'll never know. Since it says 'Dacca' on the name, perhaps we could safely assume it's made in Bangladesh?
