    The instrument is so, so beautiful! I was hesitant to order from this shop because it is so far away from where I am, but I am so glad I did! The item is exactly as described and arrived to me in the USA in perfect condition. The shipment took a little longer die to the pandemic, but I had anticipated that. I am part of a kirtan community, and will recommend this shop to my satsang. Thank you so much!!

    Incredible instrument crafted with precision and care. This ektara has a depth of sound and a bass range that few can compare to. Now one of my most cherished possessions!

    So glad to find this online. My parents had bought one from the same place when they visited years ago and it broke. So, I was happy to find one here and from the same vendor! Thanks!

About InstrumentsKorosec

Sales 309
On Etsy since 2013


It all started when I was 5 years old - I made my first guitar from wooden pieces of flooring, nails and wire when my parents were busy building the house.

When I grew up I had a regular job but in my spare time I was always doing something with my hands - from wood, stone and all other natural materials. I was also making jewelry.

But more and more I was driven towards the music and instruments, so one day I quit my job and my love has become my way of living - always exploring, always searching for the best sound, making different projects for theatres and alwas ready for new challenges ...

You are welcome if you like my instruments or if you have new ideas and searching for somebody to put them in reality.
