A new acquisition!
The woodwork and craftsmanship is really something else. I have the original Namasitar and that is suuuper “rustic” feeling and playing. It works with the overall sound/vibe, but it’s got a craft-like feel. This one is gorgeous.
We’ll see once I get into the electronic side, but it’s really interesting/weird “feeling” 17ET frets. I’ve played all sorts of stringed instruments, in various scale lengths, but they have all been 12ET, so my left hand ‘adjusts’ to that changes in scale and “feels” the distance between the frets accordingly. With 17ET it just feels weird, like the muscle memory controlling the “how far my hand is from my body” and “how far apart my fingers are” aren’t agreeing on what they are feeling.
(due to a horrible and hectic month I haven’t had a chance to play with it plugged in yet, but hopefully that will happen soon enough)
