Beware Hemen & Co. Scam!!! 

Since the death of Hemen Chandra Sen the once proud Hemen and Co. has degenerated and are now perpetuating scams by claiming to make and sell top quality Hemen sarods, but secretly buying the cheap quality sarods in Kolkata bazaars and putting their label on them.
They charge over $2100.00 for these really inferior instruments. See the pictures & read the emails.
