Some variants have detachable resonator gourds on the back of the neck, all of sitars have movable frets optimising tuning for particular ragas (Indian modes). Tuning pegs are fitted for fine tuning along a hollow wood neck, this neck design allows for light and resonant tones. There are 7 plucked strings and (normally) 13 sympathetic strings beneath the arching frets, the strings are played with one finger pick (misrab) and two fingers walking up and down the course.Why don’t you call into our York store and try one of these beautiful instruments.
