Anyone know where i can get a sarangi, either online or in a shop(Leeds/Bradford) for roughly £90-£130? I don't mind it to be a mini one either??? :g

Erm don't know about there but there is one for sale in Leicester in Guru Tegh Bahadar Gurdwara sikh missionary shop (in the gurughar) for about £90/100, shops open on sundays around 10am -2pm and on all gurparabs i think :lol:

Yhh course dilruba gives wicked sounds, but in my opnion every1s got thier own "sound" , some people prefer other instruments like taus cos of the echo etc, so the one that touches ur heart the most should be the one that you aim to learn really, cos thats the one thats gonna help you make more of a connection with waheguruuu. Dont just go for an easy option though, go for something your going to look forward to everyday :lol: even if its gonna take a lifetime to learn

it depends what kind of sarangi you want....do u want it for classical raag kirtan or for dhadi? classical raag kirtan sarangai and dhadi sarangi are slightly different, ie the 3 main strings and placed in different positions depending if its for dhadi or raag kirtan....also dhadi sarangi comes 2 sizes: a tota (small) and dhaee palsee (bigger same size as a classical raag kirtan sarangi)

I would prefer it for the clasical Raag Kirtan. Also do you think the Dilruba or the Sarangi is better/ more suitable for Raag Kirtan?
