SAS-02 also with soundholes — 3 Comments

  1. Inderdaad, le son est manifestement pourvu d’une plus grande profondeur, d’une résonance propre spirallée qui séduit. Reste à évaluer les interférences ou chevauchements en séquences rapides, dans les mînds, etc.

  2. Unfortunately, until now not any recording has been made yet. Only my 2 good friends Bert Cornelis & Jan Van Beek have been playing on these new sitars some time ago. Out of these first sessions came a small deficiency described (and solved) at Jora tar tuning problem. But now these instruments are 100% fixed and ready to play and soon to be joined by a third one.

    Still waiting for a fearless sitar test pilote.

    Maybe it’s time for me to start looking for a sitar teacher, so I can play these sitars myself. 🙂

  3. It is quite a difference indeed. Even on the microscopic loudspeaker of my laptop i can hear it.
    But still it seems less striking to my ears than the difference heard on the SAS-01.

    However the sound without the holes could be qualified as more genuine indian (whatever the meaning of this might be) than the sound with the holes which in my perception cleraly brings the instrument westwards.

    I would love to hear it played by a seasoned Indian artist. No candidates yet?

    Once again you did a great job, amigo! Thank you!
