|Comments||The Coral sitar was a niche instrument and for many years was very hard to find. Jerry Jones produced the first quality replicas, but recently he retired and his production ceased. We still get many requests for these instruments, however, so we commissioned a builder to supply us with a few replicas. They’ve just arrived and we are impressed. These are well-made instruments and hew closely to the original Coral idea.|
