Sitars have been derived from the Veena. Various schools of music pay different kinds of Sitars. The difference between two major models, the Gandhar Pancham and the Kharaj Pancham is the number of main and sympathetic strings. Sitars are made from Red Cedar wood. One well made Sitar can take upto a month to be entirely done.
The Travel Sitar has an advantage over the traditional Sitar. The Travel Sitar has a flat sound box or toomba. The benefits of the flat gourd or lack thereof, are that the Sitar is much easier to carry and occupies lesser space in storage. The Sitar is ideal for a traveling musician. One of the major complaints in the flat Sitar is that due to the flat nature of the sound box, it is difficult to maneuver while playing. This has been specially taken care of. During manufacturing, the design is specifically tested to ensure that the right armrest is comfortable. The height of the Sitar has also been reduced which helps in the portability of the instrument. The Sitar is made from Red Cedar wood. Although different in design, this Sitar belongs to the Vilayat Khan School of music. Sitars can be made in many types and the craftsmanship for each one differs from the other. Sitars with impeccable tuning are a quality norm at Ultimate Guru. Special care is taken that there aren't any cracks in the wood and no joints in the neck or in the sound box. The Sitar is a Gandhar Pancham style sitar which has 6 main strings and 11 sympathetic strings. This can be customized to a Kharaj Pancham style as well. The main strings on the Sitar are connected to Guitar tuning pegs which makes tuning a hassle-free process. It is 47 inches tall and weighs about 3.5 kgs. The facades have handmade wooden patterns on the borders. The neck-toomba joint has wooden detailing on the front as well. The Sitar is a light brown color which has no color tint in the varnish. The light brown surface of the Sitar and the dark brown detailing draws contrast. This is on
