General Info

The shape and design of the hansa veena were invented by Barun Pal in cooperation with Monoj Kumar Sardar. The strings are plucked with fingerpicks and the melody is articulated with a stainless steel slide. The technique is basically the same as on other Indian slide guitars like the Mohan veena of Vishwa Mohan Bhatt or the Chaturangui of Debashish Bhattacharya.

Manufacturer / Supplier

MONOJ KUMAR SARDAR & BROTHERS is a relatively large-scale manufacturer in the heart of Calcutta looking back on a rich tradition of three generations. It is run by four brothers, all of them trained craftsmen specialising in different aspects of instrument making. They mainly make sitars, tanpuras, esrajs, dilrubas, harmoniums and shrutiboxes. But the eldest brother and manager Monoj Kumar will get you every other instrument that is manufactured in India as well. Due to our long-term co-operation with Monoj Kumar Sardar since 1994, we receive instruments with a high quality level in terms of sound, workmanship and materials. Today Monoj Kumar Sardar's quality can well compete with other renowned brands like Hemen and Hiren Roy for string instruments or Pakrashi, Paul and Bina for harmoniums.
