While much of India is rapidly advancing, the Indian instrument manufacturing process remains very old school. From touch ups to tuning, much of what we do at Old Delhi Music is add a layer of quality control to an otherwise non-standardized production process.

We wrote THIS ARTICLE to ensure customers understand and might appreciate this vintage production style, the unique products we carry, and how we're working to ensure genuine quality, despite the odds. It's a quick read, and definitely worthwhile for anyone considering the purchase of a traditional Indian instrument.

Thank you,

          Plays well beyond expectations

          Couldn’t be more pleased. My first sitar but wow! Tunings pegs hold, action is good, tone amazing, decorative work top shelf. For the price a very playable instrument, beautifully carved and fine attention to detail.

          Simply Incredible

          I had nearly given up on finding a good starter sitar until I heard about Old Dehli Music (ODM) from the youtube channel notbadfilms and their interview with ODM founder, Nic. I luckily got this sitar ordered on the day they were restocked (gone a day later)! It came shipped securely and arrived on time looking as beautiful as the pictures shown above. It sounds wonderful and plays incredibly well. I am very thankful for this instrument. Thank you again Nic and thank you Jeff (notbadfilms) for leading me to this sitar.

          Notes to potential purchasers:
          The hardshell case I got was well worth the money, handles on each side and it even has wheels on the lower portion.
          Mizrabs: I ordered the extra set of 10 and unfortunately only one was unusable because all the others were too small for my finger (painful and purple fingertip). Perhaps order Mizrab elsehwere or maybe email support here and request larger mizrabs if you thik your fingers are a bit thicker.

          Fantastic!

          Beautiful instrument with an incredible tone and amazing resonance. Came fast and was packed securely in the box as well as the hard case, which the hard case is great too. Will definetly recommend this place for classic Indian instruments!
