We have professionally setup this Sitar with strings of specific gauges and materials so that the below given traditional tuning is achieved. Please note that your Sitar may loose tuning while in transit to you or if left unused for some time. Here is some help to start tuning your sitar. We are trying to tune the sitar in the traditional Gandhar Pancham - Vilayat Khan style, in the key of C. Please have a chromatic tuner handy.


Tuning the 7 Main Strings

We start from the main string most further away from the tuning pegs, so if the Sitar's string side is facing you, the 1st string would be the right most string.


1st String - Ma - F  (An octave below Middle-C)
2nd String - Sa - C (An octave below Middle-C, below the F of 1st string)
3rd String - Pa - G (Below the C of 2nd string)
4th String - Sa - C (Two octaves below Middle-C, below the G of 3rd String)    
5th String - Pa - G (one octave above the 3rd string, above the F of the 1st String) 
6th String - Sa - C (Middle C, above the G of 5th String)
7th String - Sa - C (one octave above Middle C, above the C of 6th String) 


Tuning the 12 Sympathetic Strings

Normally we tune the sympathetic strings to the same scale of the music or raga that you are playing. If you are a beginner, don't bother much about tuning these strings.
