A cheap product, but nice art. I would not purchase this item if you plan to play it. It's for decoration purposes only.

I ordered this wanting to learn the sitar. It is so crappy. I've only had it 2 days and 2 strings have already broken. You cannot tune it. It sounds like crap. My assumption is that this product is used as decoration. I'm very disappointed. I am going to be ordering a REAL sitar after I've read as many reviews available.

Common sense will tell you that half an instrument should give you half the sound. With these, you won't even get that. These sitars are equal to those kidde pianos you'd find at Toys R Us, or a crank kidde guitar that plays pop goes the weasle!

Sitars, at least the wooden ones, are built to resonate, so much so that the main string vibration sets off the ringing in the sympathetic strings underneath the main strings, producing God's glorious sounds.

These 3/4 and 1/2 size sitars will never....N-E-V-E-R compare to a full sized, reputably made sitar. Period.

Please---- don't bother with sitars like this folks, take it from people like me who made the mistake buying this size. These are wall-hangers.

Check out Rain City Music or Ali Akbar College of Music for a real sitar, made by good crafts-people.

The shipping was fast and the product was double packed to protect it. The Sitar was even nicer then expected. Thanks, Amazon.
