Our sitars are now almost exclusively from Shahidali. We offer Gandhar Pancham (Vilayat Khan) style sitars and Kharaj Pancham (Ravi Shankar) style sitars. Kharaj Pancham sitars are more ornate and have an "Open Jawari". Gandhar Pancham sitars are cleaner and simpler with semi-closed jawari. Kharaj Pancham sitars are more ornate and have an "open jawari". Our studio sitars are great for musicians that want to run the instrument through effects pedals or other processing units and really work well for live performance where standard sitars are difficult to mike effectively. Keshav Music undertakes a limited number of requests for custom built sitars each year. Our maker can build sitars in any style, in concert grade quality at surprisingly affordable prices. Most custom projects take three to five months and all our sitars come with a solid-built fiberglass case at no extra cost.
