I have just started my Sitar lessons, and now looking to purchase my sitar so I can practice at home. I have looked around for sitars, and they are a bit on the higher side. On the other hand, there is an option, to have brought from India, which I am guessing that would be cheaper than buying it from the UK. I would like some prices on a basic sitar in India. I don't need details and prices for the electric sitar but the basic and simple one. If it is cheaper to purchase a sitar from India, then I would get people who are in India go shopping for it quickly as they will be back early May.
