Hi to all, have moved the sitar factory to Cochise, Arizona, in a serene valley surrounded by mountains. Took some time off, most of which was spent in Old Mexico (PV, Cabo, Todos Santos). The only changes for the 2013 model year are that the toomba plates are now blocks of solid mahogany instead of the thin carbon fiber plates we used before which were apt to break off during shipment. A little more wood has been added elsewhere to further mellow the tone. Speaking of "Tone" (Tony Karasek) he is still very much a part of this project. Best to all, FOSSE

Sadly our Dear Friend Gregg has passed to the great beyond...
You can read about it here:

Some of the last pieces Gregg created are still out there. His work to perfect the toughest & sweetest sounding instrument was a passion and obsession for many many years.
He worked long & hard with many - including our Sitarfixer - Tony Karasek.
Tony knew what went into Fosse’s instruments & he even remade one of the Gregg’s prototypes into a magnificent new realization seen here:

If you contact Tony he may be able to help you re-discover Greggs dream or perhaps just have a good long talk of remembrance about one mans lifelong search for perfection.
