WOW, that KL Surbahar is a true stunner.
Crazy beautiful.
I also love the KL sitar.
Just so pretty.

Thanks for the porn.
I just love seeing all the different vintage sitars.
They are all so unique and different.

Actually the whole site looks much better these days.
You fixed the general layout issues.
Much better. Nicely done.

Actually, it's my Brother " Herr Webmeister" who's gotten busy with the website. He's layed it out much better. Don't have a clue about technical details. I can load in goodies from home now and have much easier editing functions. Yeah, bros ! ! ! That Surb is a foot longer than the one I used to have - almost too big to play !

Well, he did a great job fixing the website up.
It is a LOT better.

This next question is a bit off topic but.....
I have always wondered, if a Surbahar is tuned to G (or around there), how can there be Sitar/Surbahar jugalbandi?
I have seen UVK and Shujaat Khan Sitar/Surbahar jugalbandi.
Does the Surbahar tune all the way down to D or C# to match the sitar?
I would think it would be mighty flabby down that low.
Anyhoo, just came into my mind.

I would think it near impossible to play a duet in ALL ragas.
Staying in G-ish, check how little Shujaat had to move certain frets to play with his father. Also Shujaat's SA starts from OPEN string I recall so more difficult maybe???

I'm a bit puzzled by that, Nick.

If what goes for compatibility in one raga why not all???

I remember some classic Imrat Khan/Vilayat Khan duets.....

I think the 2 instruments are a bit too far apart & it might be too awkward to swap around frets & tuning to do ALL ragas. Especially if it ONLY the surbahar that's expected to change its tuning constantly. Strings an octave apart would instantly solve this 'problem'.

Thanks for the recent porn postings Tonyda
Some really beautiful stuff as usual - You're efforts to be the repository of the most beautiful examples are appreciated by all - I am sure.
The Kenner veena you have pictured for sale is a real treat -
