HIREN ROY SITAR

HIREN ROY & SONS -
Sitars, Surbahars, Tanpuras HIREN ROY & SONS have been the unchallenged leading sitar maker in the whole of India for many decades. The persuasive sound quality, accurate craftsmanship and elegant design make this brand unequalled and first choice for sitar masters like Nikhil Banerjee or Vilayat Khan. As a specialised small family enterprise Hiren Roy & Sons in Calcutta make also excellent Tanpuras and Surbahars. Since the death of the founder Hiren Roy in the beginning of the 1990's the company has been managed by the son Barun Roy in the second generation.

According to size tanpuras are roughly divided into three shapes. The smallest ones are the instrumental tanpuras, which are used in Indian music for example as accompmaniment for sitar or sarod concerts. They are stringed with usually relatively thin strings and have, as a rule, a flat neck and a flat resonance body made from wood, five strings and a length of between 95 and 115 cm. Their typical sound is silvery. The typical tuning is around the note C.
