Hansa Vina
Hansa Vina

The Hansa-Vina has been newly developped by the renowned manufacturer Monoj Kumar Sardar from Kolkata. It has five guitar strings and is played in slide technique. Maybe the name Vishwa Mohan Bhatt means something to some people, who with his resonant string guitar (Mohan-Vina) demonstrated this in an excellent way together with Ry Cooder in the joint Grammy-awarded production "Meeting by the River". In addition to the 5 guitar strings there are four drone and 13 resonant strings.The Hansa-Vina can be held and played like a Sitar or a guitar. The melody is produced by a bottleneck which is put on a finger of the left hand. The Hansa-Vina can also be put flat on the lap while sitting cross-legged and be played by bottleneck from above.

As a traditional instrument manufacturer in the midst of Kolkata, Monoj Kumar Sardar supplies the whole range of both Indian instruments and instruments from the folklore range as well as some western instruments. Monoj Kumar Sardar supplies a reliably good quality, both in the processing and in the sound characteristics, and can in every respect be called a manufacturer of excellent instruments with a good price-performance ratio.

Tarang's offer on Indian Musical Instruments

TARANG offers on principle only high-qualtiy musical instruments. This is made possible by close personal contact to the suppliers and a strict selection of the instruments that are included in our range of goods. We do not offer any instruments which reach the west from unknown sources via importers and which are often resold by middlemen without any quality check and setting of the instrument. The demand from the west is relatively high in India. The purchase prices are negotiated to the lowest limit by the western countries, especially for high ordered quantities. This has effects on the required care and circumspection in craftsmanship, on the experience and mentality of the commissioned manufacturer and the use of parts of the instruments that are often of a poor qualtity. Irrespective of the qualification of the skill in craftsmanship, this leads, in some cases, to results that do not deserve the name instrument. Thus it is easily comprehensible that it is essential, when bying an Indian instrument, to know the sources. TARANG only supplies instruments from indisputable sources. All instruments are delivered adjusted and ready to be played.

Of course, we understand that somebody who purchases an instrument is also dependent on accessories and spare parts. Also in this respect we can satisfy the needs of our customers. Should an instrument be defective at any time, we can arrange for appropriate restoration. As a rule we can deliver any instrument offered on our website within 1 - 2 weeks. Our international lists of teachers enable everybody to find information about a teacher in their proximity. You can expect from us: reasonable prices, prompt service and straightforward processing of purchase and delivery.

The financial aspect also has to be mentioned. Despite the high quality we offer, we also do our best to offer you these instruments at very competitive and reasonable prices.
