surbhar....... May 03, 2003 03:38 p.m.


no the tension is not too heavy in the surbhar......
my teacher recently brought a very old surbhar...
the sound is rather good but it aint good if ur playing
the dhrut(fast) compositions........
i dint have to alter or change the position while playing it
earlier well... some of them still use stands to keep the gourd..
like while playing the veena ( if u ahve noticed).. espicially females......
guru maa annapoorna devi used the stand for some time.....
but the sound of surbhar during the allap is definately unmatched
the herenroy.. sitars are not like what it used to be...
the wood is still wet when they make the sitar dont have the time to dry em out....
the hirenroy well all know is nomore...
some guys use to tag to make more money.... few ppl who worked for hiren roy.. u know
sitars of kanhai lal , radhakirsna sharma are good as well.....
