There is a nice looking Kartar Chand sitar on Ebay.
They are asking WAY too much for it, but it looks in pretty good shape.

I like the big bottom gourd, how it's wider than the tabli. Was by their shop 4 months ago and all locked up and dusty, wonder if Hari Chand is still there....anyone know?

The only link I know to Hari Chand is through:

http://www.sitarfactory.be/

Maybe he's got more info. About 8 years ago (when I was still studying sitar and playing a HC-sitar) I heard from my teacher that HC had suffered from a stroke... I've met him once when he "toured" the Benelux-countries to do jawari work. A very gentle kind person, who was very surprised I sat next to him to watch him work (most people just delivered their instrument and picked it up later.....)

Thanks Remco, yes I know the person from that site too...nice guy and really a good friend of HC also. I always make it a point to visit him but last time it looked like no one had been there for a few weeks. I'll try again in September, I know his family lives quite some distance away from Delhi too.
