MKS No. 2 Sitar

$1,499.00

The MKS No. 2 is a professional grade, "half-decoration" Karaj Pancham / Ravi Shankar style sitar. Monoj Kumar Sardar & Bros. (a.k.a. "MKS" or "Sardar") is a well established name in Kolkata. This is one of their better sitars. The tone is full and clean with a nice depth and resonance. The action and meend are superb. It feels even and balanced up and down the scale.

We have these in our inventory in the U.S., and they are each set up in our Urbana, IL shop before shipping. They are traditional "Ravi Shankar style" in orientation with 7 main strings and 13 taraf/sympathetic strings. The fit and finish of this sitar is outstanding. The carving and penwork are ornate.

Our business is family owned and operated since 2010. In the U.S., we are a small team of musicians dedicated to refinements and customer support. In India, we’ve built relationships with many of the country's best musical artisans and founded a workshop where our staff ensures quality.

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.
