P. & BROTHERS - Sitars, Tanpuras

P. & BROTHERS is a very small, relatively little known family business in its second generation in Calcutta. Originally, the company was founded in Dhaka, in today’s Bangladesh. After India became independent and divided, the three sons of the founder Gopal Karmakar moved to Calcutta. Initially they worked with other musical instrument manufacturers and finally opened up a joint business under its present name in 1953. Among their customers are, e.g. Nikhil Banerjee, Kartik Kumar and Manilal Nag. Today, Suman Karmakar is running the business, a grandson of Gopal Karmakar. Especially in a small company like this every instrument is made and checked with great individual care. As we have been continually working together with P. & BROTHERS since setting up India Instruments in 1994, they supply us with rather high quality instruments at a relatively favourable price.
