sitar and tanpura):
the gourd and neck are combined in a one-piece body which is constructed
of carbon fibre reinforced epoxy resin, the neck is strengthened with
rigid rods which makes it immovable.
soundboard: specially selected and dried cedar.
fingerboard and head: walnut is used for the strength especially
for the head.
bridge: the synthetic bridge combines perfectly with the synthetic
body and has a minimal wastage and thus a longer life because the strings
slide smoothly over it due to its permanent greasiness.
main string keys: banjo keys with easy accessibility in sitting position
and a very accurate tuning without the necessity to use slipping beads.
(only for sitar):
sympathetic string keys: ukulele keys placed at the side of the neck
leading the strings over the top of the fretboard make weakening penetrating
holes unnecessary and key the strings easily.
frets: non-oxidising stainless steel frets have a longer life and
a clearer tone.
