" I finally had the chance to play the Raga. What an incredible sound!

 

It has to be the richest, full-bodied sounding instrument in my collection! My two assistants were astounded at the sound quality!

 

What a masterpiece!

 

Thank you so much for the superb vision and craft you put into your work."
