Hello,

Has anyone had experience purchasing instruments from Indian Instruments in Berlin? I'm considering buying a sitar from them and having it shipped to Chicago. I don't want to be swindled though. I'd appreciate any feedback that you can share. Thanks!

My recommendation would be to go through musicians mall (formerly aacm) in Berkeley California or rain city music in Seattle Washington

This is the best advice you could get.

I do not like to make recommendations.  However I will say that the people at both the AACM as well as Indian Instruments are both fine solid people.  I have observed them for a long time and they are both staffed by honest and reliable people.  I would not hesitate to do business with either of them.

I purchased a Kanailal rudra vina from them about 10 years ago; it was completely professional: good communication, shipping, etc. assuming the ownership is the same, I'd recommend them.

I assume that you refer to:

https://www.india-instruments.com/

I bought from them a few items in the past. Great and reliable service without any problem. They sometimes have interesting offers.

I highly recommend india-instruments.com in Berlin.  They understand why a musician is particular about the precise features of an instrument or instrument part.  It's been years since I used AACM, and the last time I tried they didn't stock what I needed whereas the people in Berlin did.  Not only that, they told me when a fresh order would come in and sent me a photo with a calibrated background to be sure it met my specs.  Fine people!
