Hi friends. I have the opportunity of adquiring a old sindhi sarangi. This one have not skin yet and the first I will do is carrying it to a luthier with experiencie in this things. But shindi sarangi is diferent because of it have a little part of the top of the sound box within skin. Could anybody tell me how they make it possible? Is it possible that tese kind of sarangis have a traverse bar of metal sustaining the sking there thought?They cut it after put it? I don know...
Here a sample:

I would cut the skin after it has been glued and dried. I doubt there is any support under the skin, it wouldn't be necessary.

None of mine have an internal support or metal bracket. They also do not have an extra belt of skin. Skin it as usually and use a bicycle inner tube to do so as it will help you get a good grip on the skin. Don't pick too thick of a skin, they are under tension but its a small surface area and they can handle a slight thinner skin compared to classical sarangi.
Are you aware of how to string them and set them up? They are not even remotely close to classical sarangi. I used to play classical sarangi but after some time with Lakha Khan and Sakar Khan I'm obsessed with sindhi sarangi and kamaicha.
