The main bridge of the sitar, is one of the most important parts that make up the instrument. It consists of two parts: the bottom one which serves as the connection to the tabli of the sitar, which is made of wood; and then the top one which is the strings support and the one defining the final sound of the sitar. One of the most common materials used to develop this upper side of the bridge is the camel bone (for its striking similarity to ivory once worked) but it can also be found made of ebony, and finally, antelope horn (preferred by many for its resistance).

Hippo ivory is the hardest ivory on the planet thus it is not an easy material to work with. Legal ivory is expensive and it can’t be heated up to high temperatures so all bridges are carefully sawcut by us in order to avoid any cracking. Legs are made with medium density exotic woods.
These bridges have a unique sound which is extremely clean and sweet furthermore they are super-resistant to friction, they will last for months even years until a new jawary will be needed.
These bridges come from legal ivory and a copy of its CITES document will be attached with your purchase. Even though we are working to get the documents to sell them worldwide, nowadays and due to international restrictions we can’t send them out of the UE sorry.
