Congrats to Lars Oct 29, 2003 08:22 p.m.


Congratulations to Lars on the new pictures of Rikhi Rams by Sanjay Sharma on Sitars Etc.

I am drooling. They are beautiful looking instruments. If they sound as good as they look. That's a winner.

Lars, it's just a matter of time before I succumb and buy one...

Damn Neal, you beat me to it! They ARE sweet, aren't they? I really like the red and green penwork.

Still, my Srishti is more than enough instrument for me.

Yes, they look sweet. They are the nicest looking ones that I have seen. I don't know about the green penwork though, but I could live with it I look forward to the sound files.

Well I think Lars is a bit the sadist:-) Teasing us all with those pretty pictures. I think I actually swooned when I saw them!
And now I'm coming down with S-A-S, "Sitar Acquisition Syndrome"

I like the green and red. Looks like a little whiff of mother nature and it really jumps out at you. The black (or is it blue) and red is nice too.

These are stunning! I have a Shrishti Standard from Lars which I really love. It is made of Tun wood. What sound differences if any,are there between Tun and Teak? Positives and Negatives of having an instrument crafted from one or the other?

Just remember looks have no importance in the overall value of a sitar, it is their tone and materials that make them the masterpieces they are. So whoever purchases one of those sitars, please give the instrument some respect, its whats on the inside that counts. However they do look really pretty..hehe

True enough, KK. Us college-educated hobbyist musicians need a wake-up call every now and then.

College! What a waste! I'm gonna waste 2 years of my life starting next spring on a Psychology course at one of those horrid schools! Or should I move to India and set all those sitar makers straight? Just looking for an opinion here guys!

Signed Jeff! aka, the evil Kunti.

I could think of a number of reasons why that would be good Jeff, it might be hard to concentrate on your studies I'm sure you won't mind going to class when you think of the gender ratio.
