Posted about it several weeks ago. Just arrived.  It's enormous.  Pictured below next to a Barun. 

How does it sound?  I don't know yet, but aim to find out tonight.

Looks really nice! Does it also sound louder or bigger than the Barun Roy? And is the scale length also longer? How is the setup done?

Scale length on the Barun is 37 1/8".  The one from Wasim is 38 3/8".  The Barun has a typical Hiren Roy sound with very responsive tarabs.  The one from Wasim has very long sustain and seems to allow for extended meend.  I'm not sure I've played an instrument with longer sustain, which I think is owing to the mass added by that big headstock.  It's loud, especially for a new instrument made of teak.  It sounds best tuned to A, or even a little north of A, which is not what I would have expected given the longer scale length.  Intonation is close.  Jawari is pretty good.  The action, which doesn't make much difference to me, is low.  The pegs are slipping, but that's unavoidable on a new teak instrument.  Peg fitment is very good.
