  History :  
 

          Our forefathers were involved in the production and maintainance of weapons and they were well familiar with the royal family. At that time the musical instruments were produced in North India. Forced by the king, our forefathers Mohoddin Saheb and his younger brother Farid Saheb tried to repair the musical instruments and got success in it. These brothers were of experimental attitude and tried to manufacture musical instruments and they were successful in this attempt too. This was the rise of the Sitar and Tanpura industry of Miraj. These two brothers very soon became world - famous as the fathers of string instrument industry in India. Later on, artists from all over the world started buying and getting repaired the musical instruments from the traditional Sitarmakers of Miraj .
Our head of the family Abdul Rahiman Sitarmaker was of 8 years old while his mother passed away at the same age he joined his father Abasaheb and uncle Nabisaheb Sitarmaker in the traditional business of making string musical instruments right now he is the most experienced person in this industry with huge experience of 65 years.
