ABS Pro Male Tanpura 4-String
( TMSP-ABS ) ABS Pro Male Tanpura 4-String
This 58 inch long male tanpura is made by A.B. Satarmaker, master craftsman of Miraj India. The city of Maraj is known to produce the finest tanpura in the world. The ABS tanpuras have been hand crafted in Miraj for over 100 years by four generations of the Balasaheb family. The art of tanpura and sitar making has been honed and improved from father to son. The Balasaheb family has perfected innovations to improve the look and sound of the instrument. They skillfully cut the pumpkin gourd to create the correct shape, and join the gourd and body pieces with precision. They understand how the thickness of the wood body and neck will affect the tone of the instrument and take great care to craft the structures of even thickness.

The progenitor of the Balasaheb family originally made his tanpura from teak. Today, this wood is becoming scarce and is too costly to use. ABS tanpuras are crafted from seasoned toon wood. The ABS tanpuras are characterized by accurate woodwork, precise joining, artful decorations, and attention to the finishing and Jawari (tuning) work. The result is a light weight instrument of high sound quality that will last for years to come. The current proprietor, A. B. Satarmaker, is as proud of his tanpura as he is proud of his family. The AMB/Miraj maker's mark is inlayed on the soundboard above the bridge. The decorative inlays may vary, but all are artfully carved. Includes padded gig bag. Requires special truck delivery. Will call with freight shipping charges. Made in India.
