    If you're curious, PBS dug into a little bit of the back story in 2014:



    And if you're curious about what we've been up to more recently, our sitar buddy Jeff Starr released this interview in 2021:

  • While much of India is rapidly advancing, the Indian instrument manufacturing process remains comparatively primitive. 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 old-fashioned 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,
    Old Delhi Music
