About Us

Evolved a new method of tuning the playing strings of the sitar, which necessitates the removal of the third string and the replacement of the heavier fourth and fifth strings by a single steel string. The effect of these changes is to eliminate the very low-pitched strings three and four, thereby reducing the range of the instrument.
The strings of the Sitar are all made of metal, either copper, brass, bronze or high-carbon steel. The frets on a sitar can be adjusted to a particular tuning called a 'That'. The ten basic sitar thats are synonymous with the ten basic scale formations by which the Raagas of Hindustani music are most frequently organized. The sitar also has sympathetic strings. From twelve to twenty of these strings run parallel to, and below, the main strings. Tuned to the pitches of the Raaga being played, they vibrate in sympathy with the playing strings, creating a metallic, shimmering effect.
